Recommended Posts

How about a contour gauge? :D

are 10" enough to copy 1st fret and 12th fret at contour gauge?

Probably. Unless you're going to be building an 18 string "aircraft carrier" bass :D

Wrape the neck in plastic and use auto body filler to make a gage.

any pics for auto body filler?

Its called Bondo do a google search. As an alternative to plaster as it much harder after it dries but does smell. However the plastic bag is a good idea. The bondo is a bit more expensive but you dont need quite that much. If you don't use the plastic bag you can easly cut it right after it sets up (off the guitar of course) but before it hardens. Gives you the opportunity to square it up.It sets up probably as fast if not faster than plaster. It's a two part product. A tube of hardner and a can of paste (or whatever its refered to), you mix the two. The more hardner the faster it sets up.

Reminds me of epoxy but its not.
