    Oh my -- didn't know these were here. They explain allot. Wow, interesting secondary Truss Rod there... I like it! 😀 Hey, if it worked and the person did their thing with it, -- novelty.

    -- I'll never forget an Atlantic City "beggar" 😀 when legal there...30% of it was Duct-tape, lower bout, -- but, hey, the guy and the guitar sounded great. He picked his spot on the Boardwalk with always amazing Building Reverb/Echo.

    Great stuff here!! Thanks!!

    I don't have a "steamer" but "Mom" had this hand held you could kind of "shoot" steam into crack and tile grout and etc... I'd've loaned it you 😉 Even non-gut glue has to "give up" after a while 😀

    Anyway, -- excited to hear this when done!! And, see the profile pics of it.

    -- You're not re-installing the secondary truss rod, I'll presume!

    Back(pushing all my buttons it's taken me this long to get flat finally had to put probably 120lbs on it with a reverse warp) and sides still interested myself how they're gonna go back together, have new neck block fingered out....

    Really? Nobody else doing some repairs while on "lockdown"?

    That looks great. I think it'll hold. What kind of glue did you use?

    Not sure what you mean with 120 lbs and reverse warp. You're looking for a Back Bow for when strung, then fine tune with Truss? Yeah, me I'd consider that prior to the Fretboard lamination since then would "glue" a bit of it in. Otherwise, you'd risk "opening up", possibly the Fret slots. They'll open up possibly anyway, but the then forward pull will compress that Fretboard a bit. I say, that, in that I can't tell if you did that yet, - glued the FB. If did, -- never mind... 😀 I'm sure it's fine...

    Again, looks good, - can't wait to see how it sets up.

    Me on mine, "custom" my String Set, and put two 9's on E and two 10's on B - if care to know 😀 hahhh

    If use it as a Lapsteel as you commented? Then, again, never mind... 😀 hahhh

    From the pics it all looks "good". If it had a twist? Again, I'd sand that out prior to the FB gluing. The last five frets sit on the sound board on this I'll guess. If even have a slight hump, -- it won't matter -- couldn't be enough to "buzz" for Chord Playing. Well, I guess unless you achieve good low action.

    -- All very interesting!
