yeah i just needed a tut incase the neck needs angling or something, it doesnt look too hard to achieve tbh.

and would buying a bass blank work for a guitar, theyre the only ones big enough.

1)Projectguitar.com has one I think, but otherwise its the same as making a regular neck but just with the added length
2)The truss rod will fit.

You'll probably want a carbon fiber rod or two along with the truss rod, just for extra insurance. And yeah, the truss rod will work. It's fairly simple; obtain neck blank, make sure top is flat, angle headstock (if you want,) cut channels for TR/CF rods, put them in place, glue fretboard, taper, fret, carve. I usually leave the neck heel/neck carve until I glue the wings on.

They're stiff rods that assist the truss rod in keeping the neck straight.

Here are some instructions from StewMac that are worth a read through.

Yeah, I can understand preslotted/preradiused on this one. Next time, though...
