    Finished pics! A Bitsa Dreadnought for me :)

    I'm no expert, but I like how it sounds. Full and crisp. A fully tweaked recording would be interesting.👍

    As crap on guitar as on bass

    I'm a step ahead/behind all of you. Crap on bass and even worse on guitar.😭😜

    My workbench

    Small instrument (26") Small clamps.ðŸĪŠ

    The neck is on. Some light sanding is next, it's already pretty smoth.

    My workbench

    Turns out my "uke-kit" doesn't quite look like the one above, but it's close enough. Drilled a hole in the heel of the neck and placed a dowel in said hole. All this wood fiddling takes it's toll. Time for a meal before I continue the "build" 😜

    Sounds good, I like experimenting!

    If I for some reason wanted to dilute tru-oil, what should I use? (unless it's a totally bad idea)

    Finally got around to order some tru-oil. I'm getting kind of excited!😛

    Gallery (for browsing photos of Builds...)

    Not much of a build, all ready made parts put together. I still like it though, and post this photo wherever I can....😜

      Apparently no-one out there who knows anything about flatwound strings, I've bought two different sets to find out for myself.

       (It's a thread I started both here and back on B.C.)

      It's such a subjective subject. I even like cheap flats, most people don't and that makes me feel unqualified to give advice.:)

    The quality of your work deserves to be seen twice!👍

    Does it (tru-oil) darken the wood this much?

    Flatwound strings

    I use flats on guitar (and bass) and will never go back to rounds on any instrument. Flats feel good, rounds don't. Each to their own, I guess.

    Favourite guitar shops?

    Any flea market/boot sale. A slim chance to find the unexpected and desirable at an affordable price.😛

    Welcome! Playing and building instruments is a good combo.
