looks cool but that center line is pretty bad man, you should fix the gap.



Its being routed out for an abalone strip. I didnt feel like planing it down a hair if i was routing it our a .050".

ThanX for all the comments guys, any input would be awesome. Should I do a flamed maple neck tho? I really wanted all rosewood to warm the tone up but I never had an ebony finger board!

haha it's funny how you should use decimals for inches.

Anyway that's not the point, well the thing is that you shouldn't have an ebony board just because you've not had one before, i've never had a full hollow archtop guitar before, doesn't mean i'm going to build one though. I'm gonna build what i want. If you want a rosewood neck then go for it.

haha, yea thats what stew mac uses(plus millimeters) but we have to use the dumbest scale on the planet because were America. blah blah.

I really like the look of an Ebony fingerboard, thus I never had one but was gonna use the pickups I used to kinda warm it up if I were using the Maple neck with Ebony fingerboard. But however if I do end up going all rosewood Ill change pickups.

Thanx for your input

You get a +1 for getting Kyle to post.

Yeah, I got an ebony board for my first build because ive never had one before, and I dont regret it. Ive even got class B ebony and Im thrilled, so just imagine. The only bad thing about it is that because it is very hard it tends to crack so be carefull specially when hammering frets in, and when filing it.

And must I say that maple cap is awsome so thick, I love it. Also nice body shape, I couldn't tell in the pictures but are you going to go with some les paul contours, bevels?

Cheers, keep it up

I wanted to make it an archtop but this is my first build with a guitar. So I already have the next one planned out for next spring so we'll see about that. The next one will be all exotic woods. not sure what tho.
