    I have an unused pack of cork placemats somewhere that would do the job nicely, by cutting & glueing varied width strips on a wood block @ fret spacing offsets. Another WDITOT moment!

    A question for those with completed HB-4 builds:

    The most obvious neck strap button position is on the neck heel. Is there any tendency for neck dive on the HB-4?

    Holey block, Batman, I got the drill press to work! 2nd hole punch there just needs a slight shift left. Otherwise, this one's shaping up nicely.
