    It's been a while since I've posted because I've been occupied with other life stuff but I got a chance to get back into some guitar stuff and start making the tailpiece.

    Nice work. Super handy being able to do up the design in illustrator, print and stick it to the work, big fan of that technique.

    So I finished up the other part of the tailpiece.









    Having now made the two parts I know that they are looking ok and I'll mock everything up again when I make the working templates out of thicker MDF.

    I'll probably remake them both for the actual guitar as there are a couple of errors. I put too small of a radius on the curve of the retaining bracket which means the harp is not moving freely enough when the two pieces are together and I had a few holes that wandered a bit from centre when they were drilled (that'll teach me for being lazy and not using a centre punch before drilling).

    Yep I agree. I couldn't have even gotten this far without Illustrator.

    My next jobs are to make the new saddles for the bridge which so far I've just rough cut from aluminium and I need to make the base plates for the pickups which are also aluminium.
