Part II: Results are very good, if I do say so myself! Getting those contours at the headstock right takes patience and a little finesse. Here's a shot before final sanding: I have to say that making the neck is a lot of work. But this part, the shaping, is very rewarding. It really feels as though you are bringing something to life. The feel of that neck is just fantastic. So next, I need to make a final decision about whether or not I'm going to veneer the front of the headstock, and what, if any, inlay work is going to be done on it. Then, the fretboard needs to be made. I got the potential boards ready today by planing them down to just over 1/4": That's a Stew-Mac rosewood board there as well. I'm hedging my bets just in case... I have a few fretboard ideas in mind, so I'm still not sure what I want to do with that, inlay-wise. I'm going to have to make up my mind soon. Like tomorrow? Thanks for looking!
