I think the alteration to the lower horn is not only a smart move, but asthetically will add to the unique character of this build. Enjoy the crabs. I certainly love 'em.

Hey scatter, is there a place where we can find info on that jig you used for routing the 7.25 curve of the neck?

If that's completely from scratch, two things. 1.) My hat is off to you, good sir. and 2.) Could you give us more details on it?

Thanks.

So fun to watch this thread.

Great to see a clever mind and simple tools humble a CNC machine and mail-order sameness.

Maybe string one of the necks up all baritone style?

today I cut all my leftover maple into 1/4" thick strips, had just enough to cover the body, sense the body was only 1 1/2" thick

then I routed out and patched the neck pockets

so then I thought a 3/4" scale in the top of the double neck might be cool, lighten it up a little, and so kids can play it too

I'm going to glue a maple fretboard on the little neck and call it a day

Cool!
How did you come up with the dimensions and fret calcs for the 3/4 scale neck? Since I'm building a tele, my kids want one too. A 3/4 would be perfect.
Thanks,
John

A 3/4 sized tele would be freaking sweet travel and deployment guitar. I would be all over that for the next time I get sent out to some strange desert country!

You are the man.

I brought up the actual size neck and body files in photoshop and reduced them both to 75%

then pasted the small neck on the full size neck and aligned them at the bottom of the nut, and made it 50% transparent

then erased the small headstock and everything below the nut on the big one

then pasted the neck on the small body

then took the full size body file and cropped out the bridge rout and holes section and pasted it on the small body so the bridge mounting holes were 19 5/16" below the bottom of the nut

then drew a line from the e string holes to the e string slots on the nut

then drew a line from the sides of the nut parallel to the string lines to the bottom of the neck

keeped the fret lines and markers from the small neck on there, really didnt have to calculate anything

then printed it out full size and made template

I can make it easy for you and attach a file a little later

I might go even farther and make the little neck 1/2 scale. and make it an octave up. Joe Maphis doubleneck style.


that way you can have similar enough tunings on both neck so you won't have to transpose keys in your head when you change necks mid song.
