Bass tuners on one of your sopranos?????

And how did you do that finish with shellac and French polish?


Must've been a very late night in the shop! ;)


What year did Martin use that headstock shape?????

Whenever I see a misstep like that, I usually think or say "hell, I could have done that."

"We've all done it" in one form or another ;) we're not all in the position where, we can scrunch up our mistakes and throw them in the waste paper basket.

I'd just nip/grind the edge of the tuner off to match the headstock profile. Repaint the exposed metal.
Then it would look like I meant to do that. :)

You are not the first one of us to have a supplier send you the wrong tuners.

I thought it was a design feature. After all how many times have you thought to yourself 'I need a better way to attach the fireworks than duct tape!'

"screw that" :)

Reminds me of the picture of the sketch of the Mona Lisa in the Monty Python Papperbok...beautifully rendered from top to the chest ...then the hands go all wonky and it ends up with Fuc[ Stop this ....It is a very Silly Post........]etc etc
