I hadn't really notice them until you brought them up, Bill. I played it at a gig over the weekend without incident. Guess I play far enough up the neck to avoid the bridge all together. I'll give your fix a try this weekend, Mandroid, for looks if nothing else.
Nice, it looks great! That's good wood. I want to build so bad! maybe I can talk you into a couple of pointers if I ever get started... How's it sounding?
Thanks, Gus. It's sounding pretty good. A little more open every day.
Bill, you were right. My hand was rubbing across the bass side screw with every chop. I lowered them down into the bridge and set everything up again. Perfect now. Thanks.
Glad you got it fixed. How does the instrument sound so far? I'd like to hear it.
It sounds pretty good. I keep compairing it to my Weber, which is not really fair. I think it will open up nicely. The tone is very even and it already has a some punch. I've been playing it everyday to try and speed it along. I'll try to find time to make a sound clip this weekend.
I look forward to hearing it.
