How to Contour/Radius a Pickup Ring – Full Text

Hello, this is Matt Baker for Luthiers Mercantile and today we’re going to be radiusing some pickup rings. We’ve set up using a low tack double sided tape around the area where the pickup ring will be. If you don’t have access to a low tack double sided tape you can substitute this step using a masking tape. We’ve also placed on top of the double sided tape a 120 grit sandpaper. So using a flat and even pressure, you’re going to want to sand the radius into the bottom of the pickup ring, using very small, light strokes. And that’s all there is to it! Thank you very much and don’t forget to click like and subscribe below.
