Slowly, three guitars are staging toward the spray booth.  I could have forged ahead and started applying lacquer earlier, but thought I’d wait for my family to leave town before I infected them with the fumes from spraying.  So I’ve been working simultaneously on getting three guitars prepped to go into the spray booth at the same time starting Monday, July 20th (Carol’s day after departure date).

Guitar 902, the mahogany topped parlor for Carol (and me!) just needed frets installed and a final sanding and cleaning.  Last night, I installed the frets.


The fret dimensions are a wee bit larger than I have worked with in the past, so we’ll see how they fare through the setup and then “action” phases.
