This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?

I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.

A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.

Some nice ones Taff!

Thanks Brian Q, meanwhile on the other bench.......two banjos. One is a 5 string wood top and the other will be a Minstrel style 5 string banjo, with nylon strings.

I will use the pot from a Bacon banjo-mandolin, and give that old 1930's banjo new life.

Awesome!  Finally got around to finishing my muzzleloader kit and a wedding gift for my daughter.  Now I need to finish up the strumstick that has been on the bench for a year, and get on with building a 4 string cbg. 

I thought weddings involved a shotgun? Hahaha

That's a nice looking Muzzleloader. I love taking mine out for some target shooting, hate cleaning them. ;)

Gorgeous black powder, MadGomer!


 These will house an LM386-based amp on bottom and a clean boost in the top. Thanks everybody for the help! 

Nice job on the boxes Southern Ray.

Thank you, Paul!

I was going to post more, but did a test first before having to type it all twice!

I've been fixing my first guitar. It's a 60's Made in Japan hollow body electric. The old bridge had nylon saddles that were cracked and splitting and all the saddle adjustment pieces were loose creating a Sitar like effect. I replaced it with a old bridge I had in my parts bin from another old guitar, but it was in great shape. It pays to keep parts and what may appear to be junk to others.

I also have to remove all the switch plates, pickup mounting plates and pickup rings so I can fill in the holes with wood and then redrill the holes so all the screws will get tight again. They were staying loose and creating a fuzz type effect when playing. That's great sometimes except when you don't want it.

 Please try again using "HTML Editor" at the top of this box, MadGomer.

Thank you, Paul! Here's the back of it. May or may not change the back of the bottom box.
