"Can you have a bridge and adjustable string lengths? I'm using a long tail piece (gate hinge with string adjustment screws) to span 5 1/2". I want to use a bridge because of the long scale length 28.5 -32"."

"Well it only took the whole night, but its not to bad now. still off by about 0.5hz on each string. Much better than half a note sharp like it used to be. I had to file the nut back at an angle, ended up filing a groove in the finger board :( . I…"

"Juniper, It sounds great. However its very soft. if you bump it with a finger nail it gets dented. Unless multiple coats of a hard finish is applied. I ended up steaming dents out of the top 3-4 times."

How to make simple mutimedia fret markers.

Posted on March 26, 2019 at 3:00pm 2 Comments

Materials:

Tube with desired out side diameter of marker. I used 1/4" copper in the example. Plastic,stainless, brass and may other materials will work also.

Wood to fill hole in tube.

Use a hacksaw or jewelers saw to cut 1/4" sections from the tube.

Remove any burs and then taper one end slightly so that it will go into the drilled holes without tearing the wood.

Prepare a section of the chosen material to fill the holes that is 1/4" x 1/4" and 6"…
