the cultural anthropology of a small but doughty repair shop where guitars are made well again or changed for the better

Fingerboard, Frets and Inlay
Here's another contribution to our side dotting bonanza. A friend of the shop has been building guitars for a little while and asked us to help out on an early guitar not yet completed. The fingerboard was installed and slotted, but the radius needed to be flattened. We planed the fingerboard to a 12" radius, refretted the guitar and installed the top and side dot inlays.
