Right well, I'm going to try something I've never done before.
All my other projects are on hold atm.

Just came intp my mind to scallop the neck last night so I started.


Masked out the frets to prevent damage.

Started away with a small curved file.
Unfortunately the file was fairly worn so I'm after buying a new one today.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

I just got my new 6-file set which is the perfect size, some curved, flat, triangular, ect.

I'm scalloping the 17th through to the 21st, I expect to be done tonight or tomorrow night after work some time.

Thats it so far, not the neatest of jobs, but it is my first work on scalloping or around the frets in general.

I scallop all my fretboards from 1st to 22nd frets, just can't beat the feel from a scalloped neck

Get some 000 or 0000 steel wool and finish it with that, make it nich and smooth.

I haven't quite finished it yet actually.
I have plenty of stuff, it's just the fact that my file set I bought is new and they're fairly rough still so it doesn't quite smooth it out.

Although this set should last me about 3 months of body shaping and more scalloping hopefully.

Finished!
It's a bit sloppy so it seems, but it is my first attempt at scalloping.

Err, this should be obvious, but pictures of a scalloped neck look much better in profile, or in a 3/4 view

Haha, I'd guessed that and I am planning on taking some more photos later or tomorrow.
