A giant leap forward on the reso

Well I made an effort and it sort of came together. But since it differs so much from my acoustic ukes, I did something I very rarely do. I put the parts on and strung it up before applying finish.

And a good thing that was - the coverplates I ended up buying was lower than the ones I paid for but never got. So the buckle above the bridge was too close to the bridge. Or saddle or whatevva.

I thought of scrapping it and then forget all about resos. But tried mounting the plate on small blocks, about 2 mm high. And now it works. It makes noise. And the secret inlay under the usb stick is fab.

So I need to invent a permanent fix, maybe blocks, maybe washers, maybe a solid ring.

And then finish it.
