    Great stuff!

    I still haven't bothered to put my new strings on mine yet. Much like you, I've dialed in the intonation to where it plays great and sounds great... I'm just gonna play it for a while!

    When I was about 5 years old, my brother had 3-4 albums (remember LP records?) that I used to listen to. There was Alice Cooper's Billion Dollar Babies. Billy Joel Piano Man. Maybe one or two others....

    Aside from Django with three fingers, I can also think of Jerry Garcia missing a finger, and Tony Iomi playing with a prosthetic fingertip. You got this!

    Nice!

    Oh, btw, I found a new tuner app for Android that does 0.1 cent readings. Super-precise!

    It's called A-Tuner Lite. (or, you can pay $2.99 to get the full version with no ads)

    Good idea. I'll play with that and see what kind of directionality there is with the existing sound port.

    Okay, disregarding that the sound would be largely the same... if I have a soundport that points towards, say the left side... am I going to hear it louder in my left ear vs. my right?

    Just play every day. Even if it's just for 5 minutes. Even if you don't play a song. Just strum some chords and do a bunch of chord changes. Make your fingertips work a little bit. It really doesn't...

    That's sort of what I was thinking. Perspective of the photo is off, maybe some lens distortion... and greatly amplified by the horizontal lines in the background.

    Will be interesting to see if...

    Stereo Sound Ports?

    Pardon my intrusion. I'm no luthier (though I might hack something together just for fun eventually... and I do mean hack), but I think you guys might have the best answer to my question.

    Latest update:

    I decided that I didn't think I needed the 1.75" of length on my Tornavoz. It seemed like about 1" would do the trick. (resonant frequency still just under the Low G)

    So, I cut...

    I wonder now if that nut is actually crooked, or if it's just a crappy picture with the drawers in the background creating an optical illusion.

    I think I'd start by asking for much clearer photos...

    Spent a few more minutes on the nut. Turns out my "0.75mm" was more like 0.6ish. I wanted more compensation on the E string, so I angled that undercut to the A side and made it 0.65 at the G and 0.75...

    Here's a photo of my under cut nut. It needs a little more work, and then to be glued in. But, a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Why give up now? You've learned a bunch. You can either fill your nut slots and go at it again, or replace the nut if you want to get crazy. And replacing a saddle is even easier.
