“Dear Sir, A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top. I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce. The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them. It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career. Many Thanks. ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”
Burn-in Lacquer Sticks are a time-saver for filling in the ends of fret slots in an Ebony fingerboard. The black lacquer wax can be melted in the hole with a hot chisel or knife heated by an alcohol lamp or a conventional soldering iron. (Avoid scorching the wood.) Also available in a clear stick for use in fingerboards other than Ebony or wherever transparent fill is needed.
These sticks are extremely fragile. Our shippers take every reasonable effort to protect them, however, we can not guarantee that you will receive them in one piece. This should not be a problem since you will only be using a small part of the stick in normal usage.
