The backing paper is fishpaper....like we use for binding. It's a vulcanized paper! Like gasket material. Great tut Kim!

Re: Adding wings to widen a top 'and' matching the runout.

There's runout in an MDF tree? How does that happen? Does it grow in a spiral like regular trees? I'm so confused right now! :shock:

If I can make one suggestion towards marking on metal, after marking your cut with a sharpie, use a scale and a scribe to mark the edge of the fretboard and you can get within a couple of thousandth's of the actual edge and cut to a greater precisi...

If I can share an observation rather than make a suggestion, I was playing a guitar that had a horrible setup...probably the worst I've played. This due to the fact the heal was cracked allowing the neck angle to change, compounded with a very poor setup in the first place. At first, it was really r...

Nato (Nyatoh)

I've been looking for Nato! It's refered to as "asian mahogany". Kind of has a mahogany look to it but more yellow and lighter. Considering it's found more in the orient you southern hemisphere boys are a lot closer to it than I am. Do you guys know a source for it? It's for a repair I don't need a ...

Speculation, like everybody has seen through the 80's-90's destroys the value of money. Money is a representitive of labor, product, services. As speculation and rampant price gouging devalues the currency this represents less and less of what it's supposed too. Thus we see in pre war Germany a whol...

There aint much red spruce left, at least on private lands. It's pretty expensive and the mechanical properties are the best of all the tonewoods, strength/weight.

This type rosettes is not just for ornamentation! What they used to do many centuries ago is use these type of decorations to peel potatoes! A real time saver! Then cut the spud into slices or french fries with the strings.

That's true!

Actually voting is compulsory here (get a $160 fine if you don't) so we'd probably decide the thing, 'cause most of you don't bother to vote, and you don't have the right to complain if you didn't bother to get of your ass and vote IMHO.
