    Bill1,
    Many thanks for posting that.

    Doug,
    The combined tang + barb measurement of that fret wire is likely to be around 0.9mm. In my opinion you will need to be too heavy handed to seat it into that slot... further down the neck you...

    I like the 'old world' charm of celluloid tortoise shell binding, which I buy on eBay very cheaply.
    The strips of the last batch purchased seem to be cut by guillotine, so the edges are rough. Once...

    There were a few wayward opinions on that binding, and none in agreeance. Beefwood did not come up, as none of us had ever heard of it. Thanks for the clarification, Beau.:)

    I tracked down the Tassie Myrtle OOO and took a few snapshots in less than helpful lighting conditions. They should be good enough to help you remember the instrument.
