Hi Mark, I noticed that the lacquered body and neck that you picked up at one point when discussing intonation didn't have the bridge area masked off. Do you glue the bridge on top of the lacquer (if so, using which adhesive?) or do you remove some or all of the lacquer under the bridge prior to bonding?

Cheers

Darren

We remove the finish from under the gluing surfaces - I do cover this on the course if you want more detail:

Hi Mark,

You pick up a (dusty) lacquered body at 1:14:53 in the live stream and this has a completely lacquered soundboard with no bridge and no bridge masking. I just wondered what the next step of the process is in this case.

Regards

Darren

@darrenking Yes - that is right...I'll explain in the livestream tomorrow. It is all covered on the course (in case you cannot wait!).

Here...and onward:

It might seem strange to do it this way but it is the best...
