“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 entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill 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......”

Straight Edges

 

SPECIALTYStraightEdgeSE18600

These machined polycarbonate straight edges are an inexpensive alternative to high end (Starrett and the like) straight edges. The are milled on the 1/4" edge to an accuracy of .005". Not meant for super-accurate measurements, they are great for neck alignments and checking for level frets. They are drilled on one end for hanging. These edges are blank and cannot be used as a measurement device.

Note: Because our straight edges are milled from polycarbonate,  they will cold flow under the right conditions.
We, therefore, suggest hanging them rather than storing them on a surface.
