    Maybe he will go as far as using a side adjust.

    Maybe a spoke nut truss rod.

    Haha... yeah... I'll think of stuffed something (-;
    Regarding the heel.. "Staying in the upper frets for very long" is not healthy (-;

    Thanks... it's that awful new interface from Photobucket... they change it all the time and it never gets better.

    Neck pickup route access. I have 3 guitars with this.

    Thanks Nick!
    This has been taken into account. The neck mortise bottom and lower wall are exposed Mahogany.

    True... the White Falcon's HS is beautiful TMHO.
    Oh... forgot to explain the name "Bone":
    Hard on the outside, soft on the inside, very stiff and yet lightweight... So the headstock follows with that bone outline (-;

    There were quite a few revisions to this model. The final decision is to move the adjustment nut to the end of the tenon but the print I used for the HS outline template had the TR cover on it. Sorry for the confusion.

    Your logo is cool. Will that be inlayed shell? Or a screen?

    Yes. Why do an additional HS cavity if the neck PU cavity is already there, right?
    The neck will be very stiff and will not need frequent adjustments so unscrewing 4 screws instead of 2 is no big deal + the added strength to the HS is a good tradeoff TMHO. I'm still considering a couple of ways to do that without the need to remove the neck PU... We'll see.
    Any ideas are more than welcome.

    No idea yet... I just played with it for a bit. Probably inlay... don't want to go with a cheap looking screen on this one (-;
    Once I set up my CNC I'll be able to do some inlays and see how it looks like.

    Just joined here to keep an eye on this build. Never seen this sort of body construction before.

    and.....

    Gil is working on my 59 Burst for a summer delivery!

    A few years I nearly pulled the trigger (so to speak) on one of these - a Japanese LP style guitar made by Ornetts. I think they've now been taken over by Greco as they now offer the same range of models. They did a heel trussrod adjust with a spoke wheel arrangement. Here are some pics - I'm sure I've seen some other companies do it too, but exactly who escapes me. This is their take on a '56 gold top but they did the whole range of options and I notice that Greco currently do some LP Specials in this style too. Google is your friend:p

    Personally I'd prefer not to have the hole in the fretboard but it's not that obvious ... all the best Gil.
