I was really keen on the aluminium pickguard idea the other day, but I think I've gone off it already

Here's a small update.

Yesterday's lunch, lemon chicken:

My 6 fretboard blank arrived today, along with my $10 pickups:

Work will hopefully continue this afternoon if I get everything else that I'm trying to do today done

Sexy, sexy stuff. I'm really liking the look of that. The colours are working really well, and it's all sitting together nicely. Looks really crispy too, and not too lemony. Plus the chicken is in good sized pieces.



I suppose the guitar is good too

I have nothing against cats, I just think it would look even cuter as your pickguard

Think about it

She's 19-20 years old. That's old enough to call vintage right?

Nope. Vintage is specifically about wine. Seriously, look it up on any online dictionary.

Well it didn't taste like it. Trust me, I've tasted a lot of baby poop.

Here's today's lunch. I deliberately cooked extra chicken yesterday so I could have some in a sandwich today. With some lovely Port Salut and sweet chilli sauce:

Amazing, the lunches have certainly improved. Also, props on the mug, I've got one exactly like it.



Now stop fucking eating and finish the guitar, fatty.

Anyway, got outside briefly. I was planing down (unnecessarily) the front of the headstock, and found this:
It's a bit blurry, but you might see the gap there. I think the clamp slipped down slightly when I was clamping the ears on, and the extra pressure at the back maybe levered the front away slightly? Anywho, I'm hopeing that when I thickness the front of the headstock down it won't be visable anymore.

I put in the truss rod, and taped over it to stop glue getting in. I also fold up little squares of tape like this:

And put them under the strip of tape covering the truss rod as so:
It just helps to stop the truss rod rattling around if it's slightly loose. I only really did this to show you guys, my truss rod's actually in there pretty damn tight as it is.

Fretboard glued and clamped:

You may have spotted the few woodworm holes in the front of the neck. I forgot to mention them before

I've just kind of accepted that curry never looks nearly as good in photos as it tastes. Also, cool build so far. can't wait to see it done.

Soooo...

I keeping with this thread being mainly about your food, mugs and cat: "Congregation backs minister in gay row." I'm picturing some sort of friends-of-Dorothy cat fight at the local church. What gives?

Keep up the good work with that other thing you're doing, by the way. Some sort of musical instrument, isn't it?

He lives near Aberdeen. I suspect it's something to do with ramming a ram, and not a ewe.

PICTURES WILL BE BACK TOMORROW!!
I've moved them all, and I'll put them back up tomorrow when UG us hopefully not as slow.

On the bright side, I got a bit done today.

I planed down the back of the headstock ears so that they're level:

Screwed on my template through a neck-bolt hold and a tuner hole. Then I rough cut the neck with the bandsaw:

Next I got routing it. I've never routed a neck like this, felt a bit weird. It seems like it would be great though if you had a decent setup for it:

You can see here that the router bit wasn't long enough to rout the whole of the fretboard along with the neck:

I could have changed to a bit with the bearing on the bottom, but I couldn't be bothered. Time for a little bit of a planing!

I couldn't resist a little test-fit... So here we finish up for the day:

You KNOW I'm happy with that!
