HERRINGBONE GUITAR PLAN
Tone bars are quartersawn 10-1/2" x 5/8" x 1/4" spruce blanks; final shaping required.
I was almost finished building a really nice ukulele kit when I decided that it needed bracing under the bridge - the kit only came with a bridge plate, but I saw on the internet that top builders also use fan bracing. I was really glad to be able to get the correct, high-quality material quickly and at a reasonable price from StewMac. Otherwise, I might have been forced to improvise with less than ideal material - which I did not want to do since all of the other wood was top shelf.
i purchased Item # 4656 from StewMac and was pleasantly surprised with the product. The Sitka was nicely cut and very straight grained material. What's even better is that I didn't have to cut a chunk off my supply of Bracewood to make the tonebars i needed for my Soundboard. Thanks, StewMac !
Excellent, short cuts of spruce. Grain was perfect. Easily shaped with chisels. Just built a fiddle using this stock for the bass bar. It sounds lovely, and I'm sure the spruce contributes to that sound.
Easy to work with , tap tuning is a must to get great sound out of your instrument.
