String Hole Positions

String Hole Positions

Mark 3 hole positions for the string anchor ferrules as follows. The 3 holes are positioned 10mm apart on the tail end of the neck.  Draw a line 10mm along from the edge of the lid parallel to the frets. Mark the centre of the line and mark a point 10mm to each side of this centre. Now drill a 2mm hole at each point through the neck then enlarge the hole on the fret side of the neck to 4mm to the depth of the string ferrule. Press or hammer the string ferrules in place.  When you thread the strings through from the back of the neck the ball will anchor against the wood and the string will bend around the curved top of the string ferrule.
