What a great step to pass thru today! The fretboard glue up... Although I still need to clean and level the frets, just having the fretted board glued in it's resting place feels great.
So, today I started with bending, cutting the tang, and fitting every frets to their location. Made a dry fit of the fretboard and then do the glue up. I want to leave it aside for 24 hrs so after most of the afternoon under the clamping pressure it was time to bring it back in and leave only one clamp overnight for good measure.
If all goes well, I might have some strings on by next week or at the latest 2 weeks!
