Got one of these...



...and as usual, I haven't the faintest clue as how to mount it. I completely understand how to mount the tuners and string it, but how to attach it to the main body? I'm also cheating a little and making a couple templates from it, because I WILL screw it up at some point. I don't even know what that style is called...

So, the current plank is two 1X's glued together, the top being a 1x4, the bottom a 1x6. It has not been cut to OAL yet.

I changed direction a bit, and have decided that this is going to be a test bed, a place to try ideas out before a legitimate build. with bridge, nut, and pup easily interchangeable.
