'Vita' Plectrum Guitar Work page
this link for more Vita history
This is the first example I have seen in Plectrum
Guitar is very dry, with top and back cracks, loose braces,
hole in the side, fingerboard cracking and loose.
Binding is gone, etc.
Neck set is tight, and neck plane is flat, workable.
Bridge is tight to the body
With make an access hole where breakage is to effect all
Then make it a decorative sound port.
Will go with solid finish to hide some defects.
A player's instrument is my goal
SETUP - FINAL PICS
The finish is now "Adequate"
I made an effort to do a good job but not spectacular.
All attempts at keeping the price down, perfection is
expensive and best left to more important pieces.
I want a good player first, and a decent looker second on old
warhorse like this.
Setup 28-18 W-14-10 S GHS
Rosewood pins, Faux Rosewood endpins
Action is good, plays very well up and down
Sound coming from speaker is blowing me away
Well, I maybe just be optimistic :)
The axe sounds good, nice and full, warm tone and will open
back up over time.
I do not like a heavy finish on these thin walled wonders.
