I never said you had to. Just make one for 24.75 scale necks and 25.5 and that'll cover most guitars.

Fair enough on the second point, but what is the harm in extra insurance?

Its not the horizontal part that is off. Its the vertical. Some are higher and lower than others.

You cant just base it off scale. Every fretboard is not the same thickness. So there isnt really a way to make a template unless i make it specific for every fretboard.

Hot damn! Now that's slick looking. I always love the heels on your builds. Look super comfy to play.

Not grain filling at all? I think it woulda looked astounding with white grain.

No sir, not this time.
Grain filling, especially with color is risky. Too many things that can go wrong.

I throw a coat of sanding sealer before grain filling. Either way, looks great.
