Re: Stereo 8 strings

Wasn't happy about that previous neck twist so despite liking this neck I decided to pull it apart and work on one of the back up blanks I made.


Redesigned the headstock.

And bashed in some Jumbo's .

Re: Stereo 8 strings

Is it just me or does it look like some gnarly Klingon weapon?

Re: Stereo 8 strings

Cheers folks
Decided to make my own bridge , the cost with all the charges from the US for a Hipshot 8 was crazy so I found an off cut from a RSJ girder left over from a job last year and worked on that.


Got a real good quote from a local metal finishers for powder coating one and chroming the other and got some saddles of Ebay.

Recessed the bridge on the neck through.

Big change to this one with the dye on and the red home made grain filler on the back was a success.
