ive been interested in building since fall of 08', about 10 months ago i started to get set up with my own workspace in my house and now my shop is pretty well stocked with tools. my previous build was a rhoads guitar (in my sig) but i made several mistakes and decided to scrap that project.


since ive gotten set up about 10 months ago ive tried to make 6 or 7 necks and one other body. i have yet to make a complete neck have come very close and i feel like i am ready to breakthrough. ive made strides and am confident i can complete a neck. the one with the rosewood fretboard i almost finished, but i messed up carving it and i went into the truss rod channel. i may try to recut it and make it with scarf joint headstock.


the one without the fretboard i will try and use for the my current build. i will have to recut the headstock where the tuners are because theyre out of alignment, but i have a way to fix it up.


the body is my second and its shaping up.

Damn, i was looking forward to seeing that rhodes guitar finished. Anyway, good luck with this build, it looks interesting..

Just call me Julius, J, etc.
Taking an Internet break for a while, will come on when I can.

almost finished. i am going to have to take it to a luthier to get it fretted and crowned and also i need a nut made. i dont have the tools at this point to do those two things. i just have to sand it, wire it, clean it up a bit, and then finish it and i will have completed it. i should have sound clips in a couple of weeks. this was a very difficult endeavor but i feel like im getting better even though i have a long ways to go. i may make a thread to document my continuous build efforts. cheers!

That headstock is (imo) 1 too thin and will probably break and 2 doesnt really match the body at all.

edit: Why the back route, if theres a pickgaurd?

the headstock i believe will hold up because the volute is very thick. im not worried about it breaking. i originally had a telecaster headstock but modified it. also, the reason for the back plate is the router slipped and took a huge bite out of the back. basically it is a cover for a mistake. although one good thing is i dont have to take the pick guard off when i want to mess around with the electronics.
