Hi guys -- sorry I haven't updated this thread for quite a while. Haven't been posting lately, but I've been stopping by from time to time. I'll be back full time soon. Lots of stuff happening in life lately.

The string break over the nut turned out a bit shallow, and I've been figuring out the best way to deal with that. Ideally, should have been another couple of degrees of tilt in the headstock...I was worried that the high E would pop out of the slot too easily. It looked fine on paper, but in practice I think it'd be an issue if I didn't fix it.

I pondered string trees for a while, then decided I really didn't want to do that if I could avoid it in any way (shesky felt the same). I cut the nut slots a little deeper, ended up cutting them too deep in the process; in the process of cutting another nut.

I'll pop back in and post final pics when it's done.

If it's a fixed bridge, just hand cut the nut from a bone blank and leave a little meat on the top (so you can have a deeper slot) - heck a 1/16th inch will keep that string from popping out.

I did this on a build I sold just for the heck of it - the open strings sounded GREAT. Smile

I wonder if Rick500 ended up in the chipper? He kind of disappeared from both this forum and the Carvin BBS (where he is a moderator on both), and seems to be out of touch via email, as well.

I had hoped to get a bolt neck from him, and bought the rest of the guitar to go with it. This was a couple of years ago.

But, it never materialized...and now I have a VERY nice Carvin Bolt waiting for a neck that evidently will never be.

Anyone interested in most of a guitar??? Cool Smile

I'm not sure where he ended up, or what's up with Sharkfin. It was a cool project that just didn't get closure on here.

Too bad we didn't get to see the end result. I hope it didn't end up like most of my guitar projects; 3/4 done and stuck under the bed.
