I do, yes. I have used a vice in the past, along with a long neck rest etc. but for me I like having the guitar secured in the jig where it can't move around.

So with your original set up was the concern that there was flex in the neck while levelling which the jig will take out? Leveling necks wothout a trussrod that are bowed would be a challenge!


I think this is where the jog can be useful. I have in the past leveled a fingerboard (thick slab) to take out the permanent bow from non-trussed neck. This jig would be able to help do that - I just used clamps and tied the body down, like jvpp.

I think I'll end up getting the jig...once I've finished buying more gear I don't actually need.

Sometimes I struggle to understand what you post.

PM me if you like. I had a Triumph in not too long ago but it just needed basic stuff - valves and a reverb tank.

Oh well I play guitar in this room. On the work bench, new chimney - check, re-brick the firebox this weekend. Temperatures are falling...

Been contemplating making one - aluminium extrusions are easy enough to get - main one would be about a hundred bucks.... Chinese DTI's as long as they're repeatable, then just some t slot bolts and a bit of basic fitting :)

Woodburner rebuild at weekend #5, good to go. Just got to reassemble all the ceramic tiles on the outside. Looks too good to pile in wood and burn, oh well the cold will force that move shortly. Other pic is above the firebox baffle, rock wool blanket under stainless cladding, added a soot deflector piece. Manky old copper tube heats the hot water, funny every winter I think I should replace that, all greased up with lanocote & see how it goes.
