Building Necks

Post by Mr Stringmeister » Sat Jun 03, 2017 6:53 pm

So I have been busy building a few necks. Two from maple and one from Acasia Melanoxylon (Blackwood). All from timber I milled myself. Here an overdose of photos of the process:

Here the Blackwood in its raw state.

I cut the Blackwood plank in half and then glued them back together with the grain in opposite direction.

Then cutting the headstock bit off with a neck angle of 11 degrees.

Gluing the headstock bit on.

I now have three (timber) 'necks'.

Ebony fretboard looks nice IMO...

That's it for now. See separate thread for the guitar this neck will go on.
