Thanks Chuck Im on the fence on witch brand tuners. I'm thinking about peghead brand But I'm not sure . Are they ok for using on a tenor I see alot of builders use them on concerts are the stout enough for a tenor

They are killer tuners on anything. Machined from aircraft aluminum and PVC. Personally I love Pegheds.

Nice job! I especially like the headstock inlay. When you do the video, are you gonna play "Maple Leaf Rag" ?

Very nice. I like the peghead inlay also.
What is the inside diameter of the rosette? Looks larger than the ones from Hana Lima Ia.

That's looking sweet Bluesuke. Nice job. Pegheads should work fine. Collings uses them on his tenors, they work great.

:agree: Very nice work. We're going to be starting on a walnut/spruce project next week - it's going to be a parlor guitar, however.
