Nothing better than your best friend being a professional architect. He and i sketched some stuff on a piece of paper, talked about what it means to be an SG, and it became th e headstock design for the SG.

I'm enjoying seeing the S9 return to the In Progress section of the forum.

I spy a foot shot in your last post, too.

I swear I would rather spend time with rasp and sanding blocks then let the Routers attack my creations.

Me too. The only thing I use it for any  more is neck pockets, pickups and control cavities.

Chipout is always unsupported short grain. Every time it happens to me, short grain. Beyond that, routers are happy creatures until they are fed the wrong bit of wood at the wrong time.

"Chipout" is what happens when Chip gets tired of hanging around doing nothing and leaves the party.

"Tearout" is what happens when an evil router decides  to destroy your hopes and dreams for the day.

Nice work on the SG! I was curious to see how you'd approach the neck tenon; the standard Gibson setup seems like a colossal faff!

Drill the tuners. For normal tuners I use a 3/8" bit and then a Stew Mac 10mm reamer to properly fit them.

And I recess the front because I like the way it looks and voodoo

Pro-Tip: Sperzel Tuners are reversible. Never spend money on left handed or 3+3 sperzel sets.

If you take a standard right handed 6 inline set you can make a staggered/graduated 3+3 set. IMG_20171015_124117371.jpg
