Our Guitar Troji (or Trojy) originated from the designs of luthiers Jean Larrivee, Sergei de Jonge and Mark Kett. It was later refined by Mark Kett and sold through guitarjigs.com. It is very similar to our design. We are pleased to once again bring this great building tool back to the market.
The Troji is a guitar vise that stands approximately 3 feet high and is used to clamp an acoustic guitar body during various stages of construction. It is particularly useful for tasks like levelling the sides, cutting the neck joint pocket, fitting a neck or working on mitred purflings. It has many uses for repair work.
Our version of this jig is constructed from ¾" G1S Fir plywood. It is shipped in 4 pieces (2-sides, base, handle) and can be assembled in about 5 minutes. Please note that it takes approximately 1 week.
