Not sure what you mean? . . the explorer is on my table saw, the purple heart is on a counter top
Getting my fretboard taper nice and straight.
More progress tonight, milled the fret marker holes
Starting to look like a guitar now
You know you have a good neck joint when you can hang it on a guitar stand and it's not glued yet.
Just making sure the hardware lines up before starting the grain filling. I just need my pickguard material to show up.
If you dont have one of these 18" radius sanding beams you need one. This was my first fretboard I radiused with a real sanding beam and man does it ever make the job easy, definitely worth the money.
Rollin some fretwire on my homebrew fret roller
If you smear those bits with glue, doesn't it scrape off all the glue when you slide it in for the glue up and leave the joint dry? I'd worry there would not be enough glue left with a joint that tight.
Most of what I have read leads me to believe a set neck should have a tight neck joint, so I guess I'll find out. Got my frets pressed in today.
Incorrect. Even with a super tight fit, there’s still a thin layer of glue to keep a strong grip.
This is an interesting interpretation in the link below. Essentially this is a mortise and tenon joint we are talking about with a set neck.
Getting some strings on it to line up the bridge.
Since this is for my buddy who is the biggest Kiss fan I know, I had to go with a single humbucker with a mirrored pickguard.
Done, this one came together pretty quickly, hence the lack of progress pics. But the neck feels good and it sounds super heavy. It even balances well and doesn't really neck dive.
