Yeah, I had someone else bring their electric fiddle to an event last weekend, and my was way superior.
Other pickups, more expensive pickups, have a bit more edge to them, as some scratchy acoustic fiddles do. It helps them be heard. This one is like butter though. Very nice.
On that jig, you know, I did one frame, got that problem, did it again, went back and looked at it and it all seemed ok, then, when it dried, same problem.
Only thing I can think of is that the base board has a curve to it (3/4" ply), but I think I checked that. The other thing I could do is clamp the side pieces down too, instead of just clamping the whole frame together from the end pieces.
I know you probably know this already, but a lot of folks on here were worried for you, and felt bad about your loss, yours truly included. Glad to be hearing from you on here.
I want to thank everyone for their concern and prayers. We are somewhat setteled else where now and will eventually try to build accordions again. For now I have to try to cut a lot of red tape with the SBA. Wow!! They are a ***** to deal with and slow as cold mollases.
Will also try to participate in the accordion building discussion. We need to get some new young blood stirring the pot. I hope to be able to help.
