Okay well I finally had some more time to spend on the guitar this week. I the neck blank glued up. Sadly the wood moved while clamping and I have some changes to make to get everything lined back up. Unfortunately I am at a stopping point until all my hardware comes in and then I get to route the truss rod channel, cut the neck out and start getting the neck pocket routed out. Then it will really start to look like a guitar. I’m super excited like a kid on Christmas only Christmas is like a week away but I know what I am getting and mom and dad told me I can’t have any of it until then.
Oh well. I am pretty surprised at how I am taking messing up on this build. I am somewhat of a perfectionist but my ultimate goal for this build was to have a playable guitar. That’s my main focus. I would love a good finish but that’s secondary. As long as the thing plays and I am having fun that’s what is important.
Here are a couple of pics of the neck build.
Here is the neck glued up.
Here you can see where I goofed up. You can see the angle goes slightly off from side to side.
Fortunately I can fix it. I just need adjust the fret board placement and figure out how to get the nut set in there.
Have a Great Day!
