New Purple Heart Pics

Working on getting the Purple heart to the point I can string it up and listen to the tone before I finish it with Laq.

I have used a Jig here from StewMac to locate the bridge and used dowels to pin it through the string pin holes for gluing . The Jig locates the bridge in relation to the nut / 12Th fret so you have the proper distance bridge to nut .

With the headstock I was trying to capture the " Arrow Head " Idea. The head stock being angled and the " Indian Arrow Head " Purple heart center .

Thanks For stopping by . Hope you enjoyed your Tour through my Hobby !
