So far, my builds have all been fretless for the slide so nylon strings never came up; however, my last parts purchase had a set of ball-end nylon strings at the bottom. May fret a neck just to stick…Continue

"Expect ; ..... to seem like you are tuning forever . .. and also, let the strings set tuned for a day or 2  to find their comfort zone after stretching .  The unexpected  ? ......  Nylon strings work great for slide too."

Nylon Strings

So far, my builds have all been fretless for the slide so nylon strings never came up; however, my last parts purchase had a set of ball-end nylon strings at the bottom. May fret a neck just to stick them on and was wondering if anyone has used them and what to expect besides less "heavy" vibration.thanksSee More

"Hey, the sawdust idea is great. I've been using #0000 Pumice that is sold at woodworking outlets. It fills the grain and micro smooths the wood at the same time."

"Hi if you wanted to go down the grain fill path then a simple system I use is Shellac and sawdust. Make some dust from the timber you are using, I put mine in one of those small spice shaker jars. Then sprinkle it on the neck, then with a small pad…"

"Thank you for the info.  Was looking forward to your response. I used Tru-oil on some scrap.  Nice.  Thinking now that stuff may be my "go-to". "

"Love shellac.  It creates a warm look to the wood.  I also rub on stains"

"Hi Mark, I think a quick to apply finish is Tru-Oil gunstock finish. Very durable and not effected by hand moisture etc. It is easily hand rubbed on and gives a silky smooth feel. I often remove lacquer from necks and apply this at the request of…"

"Different woods have different grain sizes. Maple has a very tight grain so that when sanded it feels glassy smooth. Oak, on the other hand, has a relatively course grain so once sanded you will still see and feel minute dips along the length of the…"

"I have little interest in selling my CBG.  And less interest in buying one.  My point, sorta, was looking to FB for build questions and being plastered with For Sale ads. "

"I guess you can price your CBGs anywhere you want. That doesn't mean that they ever sell for that amount. I know that there is one custom builder in California that has clients such as Paul McCartney and his guitars command a very high price. I…"

"There are many, many workable finishes for guitar necks. Tung oil will work, but you will not get much in the way of grain filling. Other finishing materials such as varnish and poly will do a better job of grain filling on oak, but you may need…"
