Did 2 more. for fret 3 and 12. These things are a real pain. I keep breaking them. Also I keep breaking my saw blades, they run out so fast, I need about 3+ per block.
But they are the cheapest brand so that could have something to do with it, taking a visit to the hardware shop tomorrow to get some real saw blades cause these aren't working for me.

The blades I have now wear out so fast they actually jam themselves in the inlay material. So in tight corners when I need to steer it it gets stuck and the inlay snaps.
I hope I can get the inlay's in the fretboard really tight so it's hard so see where they broke, luckily the breaks themselves are quite clean.

Moar inlays. As you can see I keep buggering some of them. Pretty much all of them are done but number 15, since that one went completely down the crapper, so I'll have to redo that one.

Have you tried cutting the inlay material with a dremmel cut-off wheel? that may be much easier.

Actually I haven't, can't believe that I forgot about that! I will definitely try this the next time.

The build looks really good. So I know this is your first guitar build, but what do you or did you build for a living?! You have way more knowledge of a "proper" wood working than most people.

I wanna see this finished!

I'm a student. That's about it.
Thanks for the compliment but everything I have done so far has been the very fist time for me. I have never worked with wood before.

I started working on classic cars about 5 years ago, as in completely taking them apart and fixing them. Also without ever having touched a spanner. I do my research of course but people around me tell me I' am good with my hands.

An explorer, with red light and black hardware... what you should do is, black binding and a trans red finish, lijke the prs torero.it would have been so much more awesome with a flame maple top and a ebony fretboard....

Update!

The inlay cut out's are all done, now I just need to cut out the lines between each pulse.

In other news, I took a few more mm's off the headstock so I can fit the Sperzels.







I am very pleased with the result. Although I took off about 0,5 to 1mm too much for my liking. If I still had that mm the Sperzel head would be just that bit lower to keep the strings close to the wood. But maybe I'm nuts enough to cut some aluminium to fit the underside of the Sperzel to regain that mm.

Tuners are done.






We had some washer laying about, so I used them to lower the tuners just that bit. Also I really like the look.

Nothing spectacular going on, the fretboard isn't yet prepared for the inlays.

Thanks, I'm not sure yet what I'll to about the tear outs. Maybe I'll just leave them.

you can probably round or smooth them out justttt enough to hide it without making them look too round
