Personal Yamaha projects:

Finish neck resets for FG-170 & 180 that I started months ago and got distracted.

Finish neck reset for FG-110E that I started 4 months ago and got distracted.  Experiment to find proper tone capacitor.

Neck reset for another FG-110E.  Replace tone capacitor.

Do neck resets for 8 other vintage FG’s.  Don’t get distracted!!!

Replace FG-110 1.97” string spacing bridge with 2.13” bridge, during neck reset.

Combine body of another FG-110 with a wider neck 1986 Seagull Menestrel.  The YAMAGULL!!
