Looking forward to this! Your last neck looked gorgeous, so this one should to if it is from the same stock!

This is it...

I highly recommend loading it with some TDMs Get an 8-Ball for the bridge...

Might just do that if nothing better comes to mind. Today I glued the body blank and planed & sanded the neck blank. I also made my body template and that's what you'll get to see here. I'll also include a pic of the top wood (from ebay seller). Like my previous builds, this also is going to go quite slowly but bear with me...

Interesting horn shape. It's pointy, but not too pointy. They look a bit stunted, but I guess when you've got the neck on, it'll look great.

Also, that top wood is gorgeous!

28 CAD. Plus shipping... plus taxes... *sigh*

Very little progress this week, but at least something. I made a rough template for the headstock. The shape may still evolve. I also planed the body wood smooth. It's looking quite nice, it even shows a bit of flame'ish figure.

I take it's just a thin laminate then? I'm trying to find some 3/4" thick flamed or quilted maple for a carved top. It's proving difficult.

Yep, only 0.33" (~8mm). It'll be a flat top with arm contour.

Ermm, if you're taking suggestions, I'd personally like it more with a longer top horn. Only the part after the "break". But that's just about my only complaint.

That's nice =) but I think with this one I'll go with transblack.

I thought about it too, actually I already made it a bit longer. I'll have to do a mockup with the neck and see how it looks before I cut it out.

As you can see, I'm going mega-slow at the moment. Mostly that's because of the lack of top wood (still on the way, hope the mailman hasn't lost it...) and fb + truss rod. This week I sawed the neck and headstock angle and glued the headstock 'ears' on. That neck wood was a good buy, there's still enough left for a third neck

mmmm, that neck's gonna be pretty hot

and have you come up with any more ideas for inlays?
I'm always a big fan of offset tiny dots, but just a single 12th fret inlay would look pretty cool too

how difficult is it to work with such figured wood when you need to do so much jointing? Isn't there a risk of some major tear-out?
