Drilling tuners in headstocks
Test fit on tuners
I have moved the nut seating process up in the chain. It is easier to properly set the nut while the fretboard is still flat. Also helps prevent scratches on finished fretboards.
Into the contraption.
The striations in the fretboard are not scratches but the grain of the bocote.
Headstocks get sanded out to 400 grit at this point as well because it is easier to do it at this stage.
