After a quiet summer, I think an update on the 2nd Stainer 1679 is due. Since last update I’ve assembled the corpus and attached the neck.
I had planned not to setup the instrument ‘in the white’ but had a change of heart. So I’ve cleaned up the nut and added a saddle. As soon as the bridge has been cut I’ll put on some Evah Pirazzi stings and try out the sound. I’ve been working on some new ground techniques which I’ll be trying out once I”m satisfied no other adjustments need to be made.
