For those who know shit about tools, you gotta make sure the router bit has been fully retracted before setting it on whatever.
I was thinking of carving out a bass clef and incorporating the screw up into it. Then filling with black epoxy. But my enthusiasm for doing that work is about what it is for most things today.

Jules, What are you spraying? Is it Behlen’s Nitro Stringed Instrument Lacquer?It took me over two hours to set that up and about 2 minutes to spray the body and neck.
Yes on the lacquer. But if you buy it today I think Mohawk bought them out. I've got a Fuji Super 3 Gold HVLP with a gravity XPC gun with a 3H tip.Jules, What are you spraying? Is it Behlen’s Nitro Stringed Instrument Lacquer?
What gun are you using? Tip size? Are you thinning it? Using additives? I’m trying to get better at spraying by learning from others experience. My attempts haven’t turned out well.
It worked great right out of the box and is still going strong 10 years later.WOW! That neck is wicked!
I've read a lot of good stuff about the Fuji HVLP systems. I might have to bite the bullet.
I saw Little Feat a couple of nights ago. four of the members are in their 70's. They can still kill it playing, but by the end of the night I'm guessing they just want to sleep.Well, so much for sex, drugs, and rock and roll....
