Philippe made a scale model on his computer to show the tailpiece in full scale. Click for a larger image.
And another solution…Again, clicking will result in a larger image. We decided to opt for the second solution for the tailpiece.
And the raw tailpiece is finished. We will make it a bit more round to add some coherence between the shape of the fingerboard and the tailpiece.
Now it’s time to place the 5 tuners…
Philippe suggested to make a high precision model. Again a great way to place the tuners in different positions before making a definitive decision.
Here you can see the prints of the model. Click the pictures for a larger image.
