I plan to be at the Healdsburg Festival on Saturday, and, in particular, to attend Somogyi's voicing seminar in the morning. If I can recognize you from your picture, I'll say hello. Please do likewise.
Jeffrey, I have a few more questions about Yamaha neck resets, and your replies to my posting were very helpful.
I have tried to steam off the neck from a '74 Fg-180: as you forecast, it will not come off. I plan to saw it off, after obtaining a flush cut thin kerf Japanese saw. You use common hanger bolts to reattach the neck. I'm concerned about cracking the heel, but I assume, with proper predrilling, that cracking is not an issue? I initially considered threaded brass inserts, for strength, but they are larger diameter, with more potential for cracking. Any more thoughts on the topic? Thanks, Dave Richard
Hi Jeffrey.... just a quick note "off the posts" ...for fear of boring the troops or clogging the pipeline:)
I'm really intrigued by your strings-on fret leveling with the u-channels, and it just may be the magic bullet for this temperamental strat I'm trying to tame. Help me understand, if you would, how leveling with the strings on is better/different than leveling an equally straight neck with the strings off. I'm certain there's a benefit to having the strings on, but it's not apparent to me yet.
With strings on, is the idea to have a small amount of relief present after "long leveling", then inducing the relief to do "spot leveling"? Could the "string on" leveling be considered a substitute for otherwise using a neck jig? Do you ever vary the grits, i.e. working rough-to-med-to-fine? I know, a million questions and I apologize in advance.
In any event, your procedure fascinates me.... I just need to get a better handle on the theory and application. BTW, I always enjoy your posts.... thoughtful, to the point and always helpful. AND YOU DON'T TYPE IN CAPS LIKE PAUL DOES! :) /// mike
MR. Suits; Keith Angus here@Alberta, Canada. I just wanted to thank you for your very informative post in RE:to my case of 12stringitis (YAMAHA FG512) I'm here because after thrashing around with this 3wks now, I can't find anyone up here who seems to have a clue or understands the info on the posting. What is to be done? Abandon ship & sell the problem (RIGHT!) to someone else or can you help? firstname.lastname@example.org PLEASE!
Mr. Suits: Guitarelic here (12 stringitis) I don't wish to make this difficult BUT...I only have a cell phone that I have to go to a 7-11 for time/minutes & it's 50mi.E. or 100mi. W. to the nearest 'O-thank-heaven' and every second on the thing is xxx-long distance where-as I can use the I-net FREE@ the local school library. So, if it's not too much trouble for you, could we 'talk thru E-mail? I'mpretty much of a techno-peasant so that I can'y get your E-mail address out of your 'FORUM' members page. Enlighten me please!
