Test assembly

It's looking pretty good especially for a prototype. The glued neck seems stronger than I thought it would be, but we'll just have to wait and see I guess.

Scale length 17inches or 431mm

It looks like I might be able to cover the gap in the join with the bridge woo hoo, well at minimum hide it somewhat.

I put the bone saddle in the bridge cavity. One of my fears is the 3d printed bridge is going to fail under the tension on it, the other despite having a pretty good glue the thing just pops off under load as well.

I'm under no illusion that the sound from this thing may/will be a little insipid....Dream big and hang the quicyconses. This is making, art, music and discovery!
