    I checked reverb out for those finger ramps on Reverb, very nice, but at $61.00 @ they better be...
    For that price, I'm going to keep working on my piece of cedar... The purple wood grains are pretty darn nice... Will let you know, w pic how it turns out...

    GE,
    Question for you...
    I am crafting a/a few from some cedar, maybe oak branches...
    Is it imperative functionally that the ramp go from pup to pup seemlessly?
    Or is that more cosmetic...
    If there is a small gap between the pup and ramp, would one's fingers be getting "caught" in the gap?

    No.
    It's not necessary for it to butt up against the pickups.
    And no.
    Your fingers won't get "caught" in a gap.
    Not unless its a finger width wide and you're really digging in deep.

    I Suspected that,
    All the pics that I saw searching the ramps had the ramp tight with the pups...
    So I wondered if that was specifically functional for a reason...
    Thanks for the reply
