If you enjoy three string guitars, this is the place!

Hi Folks, This is the group to share everything about the three string guitar...it is only about 3 stringers, not that there is a problem with 6 string guitars, those are cool, and 4 stringers are nifty too...but this is a place to share ideas and post anything and everything 3 string.

There is another website on the net that is all 3 string info .... come visit it sometime, just Google "3 string guitar" or visit 3-string-guitar.com.

Somebody else also mentioned clear nail polish along the way; it worked pretty good and was easy to source.

Try a drop of clear nail polish--------works like locktite but its a little more "diy". It also works to seal a scratch and comes in lots of colors to use as touch up paint. Art

You can try to get longer screws, they do sell them in a longer allen head version, I think for fenders, I have also had that same problem

Hard tail bridge screws: Anybody have issues with the elevation screws for saddles falling out? I'm trying to figure out something that I can use to keep them put but still allow adjustment. LocTite purple might work but I would rather do something DIY.

Amazing first build.

I suspect you have a bit of craftsman in your back story.
