I have a question about the carvin through body necks available for purchase. Does anyone know the angle of the neck if there is one (this is not the headstock angle) because I would like to build a flying V with a tunomatic bridge with one of these necks.
#2
Theres no neck angle in their neck thrus that you can buy. So you're limited to a fixed/Floyd/Recessed TOM type bridges
#3
you could always angle it back a certain number of degrees and plane it flat, I think. Might that work?

i suppose you could angle it yourself if that's what you're looking for. I had thought to do almost the exact same thing as what you're planning, too. Except no angled. Just regular.

On my Carvin I have a recessed TOM with string-through, though. Works great.

alright. guess I cant build a flying v replica with this neck so i'm gonna build a carved top guitar instead with a recessed bridge

dude you CAN build a Replica, it'll just take more effort.

I know man but I don't really have the time to go crazy, I wanna make something with one of these carvin necks. The supplies for this build are my grad gift so my parents wont buy extra tool just the stuff I need to make it. I already got a router and a band saw and various other tools which is enough to build a nice axe from one of these carvin necks.

all you need is a planer and some sandpaper. shouldn't cost you more than $25

what exactly would II have to do to angle the neck and what degree of an angle do I have to put the neck at for a flying V replica
#13
especially with a band saw, you just need a protractor a yardstick and a 2x4. possibly some double sided tape if you arent experienced at all with your band saw.
#17
go to the site, it says 11 degree angle

All that theory my guitar teacher tries to drill into my head just gets buried under piles of porn and I never manage to apply any of it

You guys are thinking a little too hard about this. On the neckthroughs I've built (Assuming the stock is thick enough).... All you have to do is glue the body wings at an angle to the body

Not hard.
