Yes, there is a very good chance that this will be my very last guitar build. Certainly it would be better if I could continue on building, but it seems that life always throws you a curve ball when you least expect it. To make a long story brief and not bum anyone out, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Prostate Cancer in July. My second Chemotherapy treatment was last Friday. I have 4 more rounds to go before they can test and see where we are, then determine what protocols to follow going forward. Lots of funny things run through your mind when faced with life challenges. One thought was I had to at least finish up a few guitar projects that were nearly 90% finished. As I was finishing up some of these projects, I noticed there were a few unfinished guitars lying around in the shop. One that I truly wanted to finish was a guitar of my own design called the Neo. I had a beautiful Alder body blank all cut out and a neck, with a slotted Richlite fretboard mostly ready. So this seemed like a good choice to finish. There are some other projects that I may list in the classifieds at some point. Although I’m not sure anyone would want to finish up someone else’s unfinished guitar. I have built two previous versions of the Neo and they both have threads here in the Home Depot. Unlike those two previous builds, this one is not complete before I’ve begun this thread. This is the link to the second build; https://www.tdpri.com/threads/the-neo-finally-got-to-build-a-real-one.919038/ One area I thought my design could use some improvement was in the width of the lower bout of the body. So I added a 1/2 inch to the lower bout. The above is what was completed before restarting this project. There was quite a bit of dust on all of this stuff, and as you can see the headstock had a bit of a nick in it. So to review, the body blank, neck blank and the slotted fretboard blank were all prepped to the state you see above. Onto the next steps.
