Definitions for "Fingerjoint"
A series of "fingers" precision machined on the ends of two pieces of wood, which are meshed tightly together under pressure and held in place by adhesive. See core.
A method of joining two pieces of lumber end-to-end by sawing into the end of each piece a set of projecting "fingers" that interlock. When the pieces are pushed together, this forms a strong glue joint.
similar to the "scarf" joints that have been used on classical guitars for years, fingerjoints are so-named because they look like interlocking "fingers"; such a joint used, say, to connect a peghead to a neck (as on our new-tech guitars), actually increases the strength of that area * tests have shown it is just as strong as, if not stronger than, solid wood; fingerjoints also allow us to get more use out of our mahogany by making it unnecessary to cut a neck and peghead from a single piece of wood; and because we don't have a heel in the way from the start, as we do with a one-piece neck, we can "press-in" our frets, rather than pound them in, thus producing a far more accurate fret job and opening up possibilities for using other types of fret wire.
