After previously assembling a Jazzmaster guitar, in which I bought the unprepared alder body, shaped the contours, routed out some of the cavities, installed the electronics, & finished the body, colour Ocean Turqoise & then bought a neck & set the guitar up I’ve decided to really make my own guitar. Now after a few years research online I’ve finally plucked up enough courage to try my own build. I was going to build a Fender style neck for my JM a couple of months back & bought the wood truss rod & fretboard but decided to make a semi acoustic type guitar instead. I know some woodworking skills but usually build diy projects such as guitar amps & studio recording gear such as mic pres, EQ’s & compressors & some guitar pedals. So after spending too much on hardwood including another slotted bubinga fretboard, I’ve got enough wood for 2 guitars. I needed more tools so I’ve also had to buy a table saw, I already had a router & a jigsaw plus some hand tools, plus I needed some more drill / forstner bits, chisels & more hand tools!. Also bought another truss rod & two sets of tuners. So far it’s not been cheap! So this is what’s happened far, I’ve got all the wood cut into lengths on my table saw, first task is to make the neck, which consists of a walnut length with maple sides, I made a pair of neck length just in case of problems. My walnut length was a bit warped but once cut into two pieces & joined together with maple lengths seems to be a bit more straight after glue & clamps. After that I practised making a headstock on some rough scrap oak & fitted the tuners to get an idea of how it will look, I’ve adapted my design plans slightly & will try another test piece before I attempt to cut the headstock shape & on my real neck. Meanwhile I cut the headstock angle at 6 degrees & routed the hotrod truss rod channel & cut the headstock access hole, then I glued the walnut headstock wings. Now I’m waiting for some fretwire & inlays, plus hammer & nippers in the post. Don't be surprised if I start to ask silly questions as I'm not too sure exactly which or what task order I need to follow to finish this neck.
