“What I’ve been doing for the past year and a half…”

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything on my blog, so I think it’s time I let everyone know what I’ve been up to for the past year and a half.

Soon after completing Ashley’s guitar, I got a full-time job at Santa Cruz Guitar Company. I work in their set-up department and my specific job is “gluing up” the guitars. What that means is that I attach the necks and bridges to the bodies. It involves checking the final neck angle and fine tuning the dovetail neck joint. Once the fit is perfect, I “glue it up” and it’s one step closer to being a completed guitar.

SCGC makes world-class acoustic guitars and so far I’ve had the privilege to work on some really amazing instruments. Here’s a photo of me at my bench.
