Yes, another build finished. The Anobium Puctatum is ready and looks rather smart. The cut of bridge piezo works and although, next time, we would use 4mm threaded rod instead of the 3mm one, the tuners work fine.
The last thing we had to make was a tailpiece. To keep in line with the fretboard and biscuit-bridge we decided to make our own wooden hinge.
The tuners worked out fine. However there is enough room on the headstock for a 4mm threaded rod system like on the Tribute to Amalia Rodrigues. Yes, we could do better knots to attach the strings to the wingnuts...
We're happy with the result. The way it looks, the way it handles and the way it sound acoustically as well as amplified by the bridge piezo. A sound-check video will be up as soon as possible.
