Anyone who wants to post a survey should ask a mod first and post it in its own thread. That's just common courtesy.

From this weekend:




Lots of sanding, belly carve, and fret access carve.

Edit: I need to choose a design for the inlays and get the method for doing the purfing straight in my head.

That is a good looking body.
Any reason why you rout the pickups before routing the neck pocket? I did it like that a couple times on my first few builds. It caused so much more trouble, becasue then you have to align the neck to the routs, instead of the other way around.

Thanks, buddy. That's pretty much where I am - I've done it as a bit of an experiment, but I decided last night that the time you save isn't worth it. I also want to focus on the necks earlier than I have done in the past.

I routed for the binding around the headkstock today. I need to get some 1.52mm binding to go around it, so that'll have to wait for a week or so.
