I see most of the CBGs have straight necks, so squaring up the frets shouldnt be a big deal. What about if you are making more of a Uke-type neck where one end is wider than the other? How do you get those squared up? Do you mark the frets before cutting the width, while the wood is still square?
I have built 2 ukuleles so far and I purchased both fretboards already fretted so I never had to worry about that before. I love to customize everything and knowing how it's all done will help me to be a better builder.
Thanks for hints, tips, and tricks! Once I learn the basics of fretting I should be well on my way to the Fun Part, building!
I love this place!
Oh wow. That sounds pretty simple too.
print a few test necks first. then measure them against what the program says the measurements should be. I found my laser printer was not 100% i had to print at 102% to get correct measurements.
Good advice. Thanks!
Went to the page and put info in and saw the scale numbers and the graphic of the neck but how do you print it out? No submit or print button...
You would save it (As PDF) to your computer first. When you open it locally with Adobe Reader you will have your print options.
