It's called The Brainy Effect...
I have done it so many times that I am feeling deeply connected with you right now!
Just consider all that previous finish extra coats of sanding sealer. Still looks great.
Congrats on your retirement Rick!
What gets me is that this one wasn't even blue! I'm sure we all remember that debacle
Yeah, I'll get it dialed in.
Got my Scheltema neck jig finished up and back from the machinist yesterday. This guitar's neck was the first one to come off the jig.
It came out absolutely perfect! The jig only took a couple of minutes to set up, and I couldn't be happier with the neck. It's so awesome what you can produce when you're working with something built to machinist tolerances rather than woodworker's tolerances
Here's a shot of the cradle and end pucks. These are the '59 roundback profiles.
I love that neck!
Bravo for building and making good use of Scheltema's jig , I also like that you made it out of aluminum?
Once I build one of those but I didn't ever make it work properly for me, the neck was always some mm off at the nut or the heel....
Maybe you should cnc your jig parts Nick and give it another go. .
For sure it was my mistake Marty, but since I am heading to accomplish my cnc, a God knows when ,I hope then to be able to cnc my guitar necks.
I have been very proud to carve a neck within a coupla mm’s of what I intended, Nick, you are too hard on yourself !
I am not hard with my self Rick ,that is why I am at the same sh#t level of guitar building after so many years!
Wow Roger, those things are nice, ( Neck and Jig )
My scheltema jig never got me that close, not even remotely, but i made mine from baltic birch ply.
Still it should have given better results than it did, so i blamed myself.
It is always me after all, that ruins nice wood. Well MY nice wood anyway. heheh
Maybe it was my choice of bit...
Fabulous, just great stuff!
Look forward to see the body finished again! Great work!
