Too much neck flex...

Started this discussion. Last reply by JL Feb 19, 2018. 9 Replies

I'm building a new concert scale uke from a CBGitty kit. This time I'm using a dowel glued into the heel/neck block. The problem I'm having is the amount of flex from the neck. For some reason this…Continue

"For proper intonation, where should a 6 string bridge with a slanted saddle be positioned? Low E at the end of the scale length or High E?"

JL replied to Richard White's discussion Too much neck flex...
"The neck looks quite substantial so I'm guessing you don't mean the neck itself bending like an archer bow, but that the neck/box joint is flexing. and if so, you need a bigger mounting block that contacts more of the soundboard and the…"

Taffy Evans replied to Richard White's discussion Too much neck flex...
"Ok, the photos do help. The neck grain looks to run correctly, the fingerboard is substantial, so I assume your comments about "flex" to be associated with the neck body/box joint.  I feel that if you carry that block through the box…"

Hey, Richard.   I really like your ukes.   Glad to have you for a nation friend.   I built a couple of sopranos, but they were poor players.   I have a Lanakai concert that I like and play some.

Last Tuesday you commented on my ukulele asking how I stained the back and kept it from getting on the paper trim.  I mentioned Frog Tape.  Here is a website about it and a little video on how it works.  http://frogtape.com/  I notice there is a newer product also that is for delicate surfaces.  Might even be better, it is yellow tape.  You can get it at almost any good hardware store, ACE, Walmart, etc.   I have not tried this on a cigar box, bit like I wrote I know it works pretty good, least it did on my kayak.  I will use it next time I build a uke and I want to stain, but save the paper.

Richard, Thanks for the friendship...I like the punch logo on the headstock to looks cool. Good idea.
