Righto quick update
So i went and saw a luthier and he basically said that i cut the neck the wrong length (which i knew) and that the guitar will now no longer acommodate a standard bridge.
Instead he suggested that i use a tailpiece and a floating bridge, which will look just as good if not better.
i am using rosewood for the tailpiece and having the same curve of the headstock. i am also carving my initials AD into it. the bridge will be just like an ordinary bridge except it will only be held down by the pressure of the strings.
started finishing with a shellac finish and it looks a treat.
soory no pics but should have some by the end of next week
