Neck & fingerboard wedge joint looking nice.

Our next session will be refining the heel, the volute, then gluing the neck to the body.

I’m working on this with a friend of mine, Rick, for his build. I hope this is ok for the Brotherhood Build. My Wilshire on hold, until we get this done.

I’m trying to teach him what goes on in building a guitar, & only doing the things he isn’t comfortable doing.

He is basically apprenticing under guidance. :lol::lol::lol:

Started April15th, putting the SouthAfrican mahogany blank together.

He purchased the wood from Windsor Plywood in Winnipeg, MB.

It's great when talented people want to teach. When I was in my early 20's all the older guys in my area like the great Hideo Kamamoto had all the apprentices and proteges they needed, and the younger guys were ego maniacs that wanted to take the knowledge to their graves. Hats off to you for passing it on.

Last night I had Rick do some fretwork.

A little bevel on the corner of the body, to make a nicer transition to the upper frets. A bit more final sanding of the joint are before any finishing can be done.

Rick is on a week long holiday, so we won’t have any posts until he is back.

Well, my buddy Rick took it home & did the grain-fill & final sanding.

Last evening he came over & I sprayed a couple sealer coats of lacquer.

The neck grain has a bit of figuring.

This aft, I had time to mask & give the headstock some colour. Rick wanted to show the grain, so he didn’t grain-fill the face of the headstock.

It’ll shine up with the next bunch of coats of clear nitro lacquer, early next week.

Well, finally got back to it after each of us where on holidays, then each of us & spouses got the “C -Positive”. Although from different sources in the area.
We are all fine.

Tonight, we painted cavities with conductive shielding, installed tuners, pots, switch, switch cavity cover & oiled the fingerboard.
Still waiting for custom Rainville pickups.

Starting to look like a guitar.


Next will be fitting the nut, machine a pick guard, truss rod cover, and rear cavity cover. Then wait for pickups.
