Hello,

I'm a new/learning luthier from the Pacific NW. I grew up in my folks' machine and boat building shop, and just recently started building guitars. My first, just completed a few week ago, was based on a wonderful KMG 00-12 kit - Walnut and Sitka spruce.

I've started #2 which is also based on a KMG Kit, this one will be a Ditson 12 fret in walnut and Sitka.

The KMG Bridge setter is a great tool for bridge placement. Perfect placement.

I can highly recommend this tool.
