Sew first Pick-Up 9 rows under the last fret (see below) and the second two rows under the first.



Frets: (dark grey)
Sew on the frontside of neck with yarn needle. Frets between 90. and 91. row,, between 82. + 83. R, between 74. + 75. R, between 66. + 67. R, between 58. + 59. R, between 52. + 53. R, between 46. + 47. R, between 40. + 41. R, 34. + 35. R, between 28. + 29. R, between 24. + 25. R, between 20. + 21. R, between 16. + 17. R, between 12. + 13. R, between 8. + 9. R, between 6. + 7. R, between 4. + 5. R, between 2. + 3. R by using backstitch.
AFTER SEWING THE PIECES TOGETHER sew two additional frets on the corpus. One directly on the seam between corpus and neck and another one two rows under the first. Carry the yarn under the strings!

Strings: (silver)
Sew on the frontside of neck with yarn needle between 2. + 3. st, 4. + 5. st, 6. + 7. st, 8. + 9. st, 10. + 11. st and 12. + 13 st.
On the head for the first 4 rows straight and then transverse to the position of the several pins. Begin at basic chain between 5. + 6. st, 7. + 8. st, 9. + 10. st, 11. + 12. st, 13. + 14. st and 15. + 16. st.
On the corpus begin at basic chain between 9. + 10. st, 11. + 12. st, 13. + 14. st, 15. + 16. st, 17. + 18. st and 19. + 20. st and end 4 rows from last row.



Assembly:
Sew the side of corpus together with frontside and backside. Stuff just enough to keep piece from collapsing in on itself (overstuffing will cause die to bulge too much and not keep its shape). 
Sew the side of head together with frontside and backside. Stuff just enough to keep piece from collapsing in on itself (overstuffing will cause die to bulge too much and not keep its shape).
Sew the frontside and backside of neck together, the sew to corpus. Stuff more as corpus and head. Sew neck and head together. Pay attention to position neck in center of corpus and head and let the backside of neck shape a hemicycle form.
Sew the pins with round side to head.

Please let me know, when you find any mistake, so I can correct it.
