    And we are on the road.

    Today I strated with the neck.

    First cut it out with the jigsaw, and routed it with the router.
    [​IMG]
    Made a router jig for the truss rod channel.
    [​IMG]
    Positioned the neck, checked it twice en routed the channel.
    [​IMG]
    Should have check it a 3th time, because the channel is a bit off centre:mad:
    (Looks worse than it is).
    [​IMG]
    Radius the neck with a "vintage" 7,25" radius.
    [​IMG]
    Printed a fretboard, stick it to the neck, and cut the fretslots with a knife.

    Tomorrow I will cut the slots with a fretsaw. Monday I hope to start with the steel body.

    That must be the most wicked way to cut fret slots I've seen. Nice! Waiting to see more.
