It is time to string up Stu Fuch's baritone.
First you must find the exactly perfect location for the bridge. The saddle must be exactly 20 1/8th inches from the center of the zero fret. The baritone scale length is 20 1/8. The bridge location is located with blue tape.
Once positioned, it is surrounded by many pieces of tape to hold its position during the gluing process and to mark the area to be scraped clean of shellac so the glue will adhere.
This area is scraped to bare wood with a razor blade, the reflection will soon be scraped away
Glue is applied and the bridge is clamped with this homemade clamp which can reach all the way from the sound hole.
Now, with the bridge and saddle in place it is time to bring out the strings.
And to determine where to drill the tru bridge string holes. First you stretch a string and determine where the G and the A strings go. Then carefully measure the distance between them and divide that distance by three. Now you know the distance between each string. in this case, 5.88.
And now, with the Dremel, drill the holes in sizes appropriate to each string. Remember to round the entry areas so the string does not encounter a sharp edge.
And finally you push the strings down the hole, fish it out the sound hole where you tie a simple overhand knot and pull it back tight to the tuner--your uke is now strung;
