Ok, Thanks to all the fine people here, I got bitten and started my first build. Making the body was not that difficult but I have a question that I can't find an answer for in the dxf files or this forum. Can anybody here tell me at what thickness I should plane the neck blank? I'm having a piece of maple and a fretboard so a hint for the thickness of the fretboard would be much appreciated as well. Thanks in advance, Erwin. sizes can be in inches or mm I don't care either way.
