“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......”

Locating Pins & Drills

LocatingPins

Locating pins in use.
Set includes: 2 drills and 6 locating pins

This set of 1/32" (.031") precision locating pins are perfect for use in fret slots for locating fretboards and other parts. The set consists of 6 pins and 2 drill bits. Just drill, position, and glue. Use a soldering iron to heat and remove pins after gluing!
 
The locating pins and drills are slightly larger than most slot kerfs, however the crown of the fretwire will cover the hole created by the pin. These are not appropriate for use on a fretless fingerboard where the slot width is less than 1/32".
