Hi everyone,

so my project continues however one of my machine head holes is driving my ocd batty so I’m considering moving it. How would one go about doing that? Dowel and redrill? Fill it with black epoxy? Don’t bother?

 

your thoughts appreciated!

@usadave Yeah, if you wanted to do it, just dowel it and redrill etc but personally I would leave it, get the guitar finished and play the thing. When you’ve done that, get building another one, remember what you did wrong last time and avoid doing it again. Doing this you get to do all the things you like. 🤘😁🤘🎸

I can’t see anything wrong, which tuner is it.

Don’t call us we’ll call you

@usadave

Personally I think you should leave it and move on. Unless you replace the headstock veneer the repair will always be visible and that is probably worse than a tuner that’s slightly off.

Plus you’ll see the repair on the back of the headstock...

Pratice on scrap...

The A string. The angle of the photo sort of hides the issue a bit. The tuner needs to move about 2.5 mm to the left so the strings fan out evenly over the headstock. A design mess up on my Thought I had the tuner holes dialed in.
