Need help with scarf joint!

Recommended Posts

Ok I feel dumb. I feel like I get how the jigs and stuff are made but just cant grasp the concept of how its done or how the headstock sits after sanding it? Could anyone point me to a definitive guide or explain how it all works? I have two builds in the works and im on this scarf section :)

 

Thanks guys!

This thread, page 4 is the most recent discussion. The drawings show the two ways the scarf joint are typically glued together to get your angled headstock.

Ok awesome! I just read through it and replied. Basically because the offset of the jig is there, it creates a slightly angled face on the head stock right?

The compound scarfing jig will be one of the first things I feature in the upcoming ProjectGuitar.com YouTube channel series. I know it doesn't help you this week, however I'm sure we can enlighten you in the meantime.
