Shinto Saw Rasps

Now available through our website is the Shinto Saw Rasp.  These rasps are made from 10 pieces of double-sided riveted saw blades and will make quick work of your carving needs.  The combination of the saw tooth design and the large open areas prevent clogging that happens with normal rasps.  Use the coarse side for quick shaping and very rapid material removal.  Use the fine side for the finishing pass. Guitar builders will love using these to shape a guitar neck or to work a beveled edge on the guitar bodies.

We also have available the Shinto planer style saw rasps that comes with a removable blade. The two handles are raised above the work surface to allow you to work on larger surface areas without your hands getting in the way.  The blade is easily removed to allow access to both a coarse and fine sides.  By removing More »

A new product we just received in are US manufactured vintage style telecaster bridges and neck pickup covers.

We are selling these in both full and half bridges.  The full tele bridges are direct replacement for US and Mexican Fender Telecaster guitars that were originally equipped with this style bridge.  Both of these are also great for custom guitar builds since they can be strung either through the body or top loaded.  Drilling the holes through the guitar body can sometimes be difficult for the novice builder.  The full bridges also feature a satin finish area on the inside starting just below the pickup mounting holes.  The half bridges are fully polished on the inside.  The brass barrel saddles are uncompensated and can easily be upgraded.

The other new product we added are the Telecaster neck pickup covers.  These are standard tele sizes and come in both closed and open styles.  The open pickup covers will give your tele a very different sound then the standard covered neck pickup covers.  Like all of the other pickup covers we sell these are manufactured in the US from stamped nickel silver metal.  These are available in unplated, chrome, gold and nickel finishes.
