I bought this neck form Rondomusic. It came of a busted body.







Making the body mockup...



Her she is at the moment.



I will be leaving town for forever and wont to back until January, so ill start progressing then.

^Depending on how awesome the grain looks on the body, i might leave it natural and sand that green burst off the headstock. So hopefully i don't get flamed later on.

Hurray for 8 strings! Can't wait to see more progress...the neck looks great by the way.

I want to find a huge piece of graphite material for the nut.. i want to fill that cavity but i can't find any place that sells stock of nut material. Maybe Lumberjack or LPaddict can help me with that...

the headstock will stay if my green burst practice goes well. if i can't recreate that burst, im going al naturale.

warmoth has a 3 1/4 inch bone nut blank. if you're into that of course...

way cool project! I've always wanted to build an 8 string.

I LOVE that body shape, good luck on the build

Nice Ash.

Sweet build so far. I like ERGs, but an 8 string is just crazy to me. is it tuned to an octave below E standard? Also, I was wondering, if you were feeling super generous, if you could measure the thickness of the neck, fretboard and all, at the heel end, and the fretboard thickness at the heel end as well.

^Gimme a sec. I plan on tuning it low-high
E A E A D G B E

that is a halfstep lower on the lowest string, and a whole step lower on the B string...

Bought a new blade (installed, old turd beside it)...



This blade kicks total ass. i would never be able to follow guidelines with the other turd...



Bandsawing is done. next time i will be sanding... i need to get one of those drill bit sanding drum thingys...



Ash Art... :scratch:



IS IT READY YET!?!?!!

This looks awesome!

Oh, and as I see there are two truss rods in that neck. Is this really necessary when building an 8-string?

the overall thickness at the heel is 1-1/8"

fretboard thickness is 1/4" at the crown, and 1/8" at the edge.

No its not necessary if you use a high quality truss rod. Though im sure the Koreans used the cheapest they could find so im glad this has two.

I'm curious as to how you managed to luck out and nab a neck from Rondomusic? Is it just that they had a busted body and you somehow learned about it, or what?

Either way, definitely liking how this is shaping up! Keep it up!

Hmm...I wouldn't think it's something they show often, right? I'd like to be able to nab one someday, but I guess it's a matter of searching and hoping.
