American Standard con't...

Have no fear…progress is near.

There has been more thinking then action in the workshop recently. Did you ever hear the saying “measure twice, cut once”…well that is what has been going on. Thinking how to correctly repair the delamination in the bass back while doing a good job that will last the ages. I will say Lonnie has employed some unconventional techniques but they are giving good results. Where the plies are now glued in place with hide glue we are getting a good woody thump which replaces the hollow dead sound we were getting. As progress moves along we should have this bass (hopefully) back in thumping condition for the spring festivals.

Two steps forward…
