Almost done....

Saturday, November 4, 2006

I'm making good headway on my new banjo neck, I really want to play it and also I have other projects and jobs that are pressing, so I need to get this one finished!

Since I last posted, I've finished shaping and sanding. I glued on the fingerboard, finished that and fretted it...and begun finishing the neck.

I did a base coat with tinted french polish, and then sprayed some darker color coats on. I tried to match the original neck's finish as close as I could. It's looking good! Now it's all ready for some clear coats, and then it'll need a while to cure up before I can rub it out and put it all together! Then all I'll need to do is set her up.

Please, take a look at my photos, I've uploaded a few and I have more if anyone wants to see.

I am a guitarist and a luthier who discovered the banjo a few years back, in a quest to find new fingerpicking ground. It has improved my guitar playing and given me a lot more pleasure than I expected! The banjo is a surprizing instrument! I enjoy playing old-time melodic and classical style banjo stuff, not into the bluegrass.
