Hole-y Headstock

I drilled tuner holes. But first I had to order a 14mm brad-point bit. (Well, it didn’t have to be brad-point, but they work a lot better for this application.)

Hmm, this might not be a genuine made-in-Austria Fisch. New bit on the left, an older one on the right.

In any case, it did a good enough job on four holes.

The bit goes in…

…the bit comes out.

And here’s what it will look like (sort of) when I install the tuners. Use your imagination to add an inlaid logo, a truss rod nut cover, and a super-smooth finish.

Tuner test fit, front.
