The Baron’s soprano in for service

My friend Robin is off to the UWC in the States, so he wanted me to polish up his soprano that I built so many years ago. 

I checked the frets to make sure they were all level. There was one or two that needed attention but no big issues. 

I checked by letting my tiny square straddle three frets at a time. A high fret will cause the square to rock. 

Then I taped the fretboard and made sure all were crowned properly and polished them. 

After cleaning the fretboard thoroughly with some naphta and scrapers I oiled it with linseed oil and restrung it. It barks as it should, one size löuder!
