I dunno. Like I said I'm not sure he'll clear with the e string tuners even when it is. But it's up to him to find out. I just said it's something to look at anyway.

It looks like the rest should clear once you cut the headstock down to your lines though.

You'll notice he has drawn a secondary line on the front of the headstock which I guess is the one it'll get trimmed to so they'll clear properly.

a) The tuners are made by Schaller
b) has been answered already I'll just trim the headstock so that they'll rotate freely

Some progress again, though this week we had to stop early since one guy shortened his fingers a bit with a beltsander and had to be taken to a hospital. I'm not going to go into details but it wasn't pretty. Though this was due to erroneous working methods and most of you already know this, I'll still say it out loud: always be careful with powertools!

This is what I got done...

Hi again GB&C. After all the hard work I've been doing lately it was time to relax with guitarbuilding again. All is good otherwise but I'd REALLY need to come up with an inlay design soon.

As I'm being pretty much self-supported guitarwise now and like to have self-made gear, I've began thinking I should really make me an all-tube amp to play these through. I do have education on electronics and have had an electronics related side-job for years now so I'm pretty confident on my skills on this department. What I don't have is experience on amplifiers or tube-driven stuff in general. But luckily there's GB&C where to ask for advice Anyway for a first amp I'd most likely go with a kit. We'll see what happens, if I ever have the time that is.

Here are the pics:

Shaped the headstock a bit...



I'm really beginning to like the looks of this.



Fitted the neck to the pocket.



Started shaping, still in the rough stages.



This one too will have a volute.

I never do either. Its just all about learning how fast to go and which way along the grain.

First of all, I do get chips and tearout just like everyone else. Maybe it doesn't show on the pics because I've already cleaned things up before taking them. Avoiding that is just a matter of careful planning and not rushing into things. And using sharp blades

[EDIT] This exactly:

Here's another few pics:

I pre-drilled the pickup cavities to be routed next. At the bottom you can see the channel for wires. A few holes have also appeared on the body.


Recesses for the stop-plate and bridge screw bushings.


The hardware in place.


Test-fitting the bridge.

Question, how did you go about recessing the bridge plates and stuff? And where did you get such a white flat area to take photo's on/by?
