First post here! There's a wealth of great build info on this forum
I'm going to carve a 24.75" conversion neck (1pc curly maple, V-neck, headstock adjust) for my Highway One Strat. I've built a few guitars before but I've never done a Strat-style neck or anything where I designed the neck around the body. Being new to this method I had a few questions..
1. What's the best method for radiusing with a sanding block? I thought about sanding against a straight edge to keep my block from twisting.
2. Truss rod.. I was originally going to do a 2-way (flipped upside dow)n to avoid routing a curved channel until I saw Motor City Tele's build where he used a flat channel and a curved fillet. Has anyone else done this?
3. How deep should the nut slot be?
4. How would you do an overhang with a 1pc neck? Apparently you can only fit 21 frets onto a 24.75" Strat neck and I'd like to get the extra 22nd if possible
