Hi Matthew. I have built a number of Koras – some

simpler than the others & have dealt with the problem you describe

quite a few times. I just posted an article on my webpage about

making a guitar-geared-tuner and fiddle-peg tuner type Kora neck that

addresses the problem. It’s on my webpage at:

http://www.DennisHavlena.com. Look for the neck article under

my “Kora” section. Please let me know how it goes. Also one my simple harp building articles on the webpage talks about how I used small chunks of ebony to combat the “digging in “‘situation. Cheers – Dennis Havlena
