Making progress with your guitar Beth.  The bridge is on, the nut is shaped, the fretboard is cleaned up, and next we move to the strings.  First step was to strip off the lacquer for gluing the bridge.  Many careful measurements for placement.


Then using the fancy little bridge clamp, glue it down.


After it cures, remove the clamp then drill out the pin holes and see what it looks like.


I installed the end pin and took some comparison shots between the OM and the parlor.




Note the fretboards look a little dull.  After I trim down the frets for the final setup, I’ll apply a little lemon oil and they’ll look glorious.
