This is turning out really really nice. Excellent work.
This is what I've done these past few days:
I just noticed that my fretboard ended up uneven at body end.
It's higher on the treble side.
I'll address this when I sand dots down.
I struggled a lot with the fretboard sanding. And still will.
I got to finaly assemble the neck to body.
Checking for the alignment befor drilling the neck.
After I assembled the neck, I drilled the bridge holes
Not straight, but I still like it that way.
Fun thread. I also build Jag shaped Teles. I have not done a belly cut on any of them, but probably will this next one.
Good work and thanks for sharing.
Looks alright to me.
Which luthiery school are you attending? B&H? Thought I'd ask.
Do keep up the good work - I love bound guitars, certainly my second full scratchbuild will have binding, possibly double! Any ideas on the colour yet?
I did attend B&H. I've finished my guitar there back in 2010. Since then I've only visited a few times.
Oh, yes. It's gonna be a Fender Sunburst.
I tend to like the brighter colors (blonde, butterscotch, natural, etc.). But all my guitars are bright colored!
Dude that is one thick fretboard. What kind of wood is it?
Yes it is. Do you know of any downsides to that, besides that it looks odd?
It's that thick because I recessed the truss rod into the fretboard and I wanted a thick neck.
The wood is Pau Marfin, a Brazilian native. I can't tell what it's similar to.
