    Hi champ,

    Yes I wasn't happy with the first neck. I cut an aluminium tube, 10mm diameter, and inserted it into the access hole for the truss rod. Then I sanded in the spindle sander to the profile of the headstock...it naturally follows the curve and ends up flush cut.

    Ok finished with hand rubbed burst.

    I think im happy with the colour, given poly will darken it slightly.

    It's a humbucker telecaster bridge plate, with modern saddles. Non vintage.
