    Hello, looks great! This gives me inspiration: I've never thought of making a one-piece neck with double action rod. I'll probably try this sometime.
    Thanks for sharing.

    The neck work on that guitar is just outstanding! I agree with you about the wood grain----but you gotta go with the customer's wishes, or no $$$.

    That's one of the nicest 3-tone bursts I've seen. It's especially beautiful with that grain. At least the customer didn't ask you to paint it a solid color.

    Prost!

    Wow that really does look great! I have been wanting to try a double action truss rod in a solid maple neck for a while. Did you use wood glue our epoxy on that skunk stripe?

    thanks for the nice comments:p

    I've only used Titebond glue, double-acting slack is an excellent choice

    Hello people

    A few days ago trying to finish this guitar, when applying the final coat of clear nitro, something terrible happened
    a day with humidity in the environment is not good to paint with nitrocellulose at the end of the day the guitar had all white, ruined work
    I get angry the next day remove all paint and I started again
    here the result
