I got the neck finished up this weekend, and have been enjoying playing it for the last couple of hours. In the last installment of this project, I will cover the finishing basics.
Part seven picks up with the frets having been installed and the excess clipped off.
In part 6, it is time for the neck to get fretted, and the tuner holes drilled.
In part 5, the neck profile gets carved.
Part 4 details the installation of the walnut filler strip and headstock plug, and rough cutting the fret slots.
Time to finish off the truss rod in this installment.
The last post left off with the curved truss rod channel having been routed. Now the blank begins to look like a guitar neck.
