Nice! Great work, excited for some neck stuff to happen
You and me both! I never start on necks until I have the the neck, the fretboard, and truss rod on hand. I've found too much variation in the stewmac truss rod in terms of length to just cut a slot and trust it'll be right.
I got the african blackwood on ebay and sent it off to lmii to be radiused and have the fret slots cut. It's actually work I CAN do myself...but I just don't trust myself on this expensive wood and I know they'll do it perfectly.
So the fretboards should ship by the end of the week. My truss rod got lost in Pennsylvania (long story) but it's finally headed this way. And my neck blanks are sitting in the basement just waiting for their moment to shine.
If I don't get them by this weekend I might take a break from body work and wind some pickups.
