  1. That's a common problem when sanding a fretboard which already has the taper, as there's less surface to sand in the first frets. That's why some people radius the fretboard before shaping it. But yeah, not going too far helps to minimize the effect.
  2. I'm very fan of kmensik's work, love his concept of simplicity and caring for details... But I prefer unique designs, and the fact that the texan one was designed on the fly (with no computer aid) makes it a really special guitar, so it got my vote. Congratulations @ScottR , you're the boss.
  3. Stunning guitar! O_O
  4. I think I did the same in some of my guitars, 22 or 23 frets, don't remember well, trying to get the neck pickup closer to an "imaginary" 24th fret...
  5. Congratulations, Scott.!!
  6. Ahhh... nice weather, it doesn't exist here. We switch from arctic winter to saharan summer in a blink... I hope I can start thinking on resuming the project in two months, let's see.
  7. Great build, congratulations... it looks really cool!
  8. I didn't know that nitro could be removed with acetone... live and learn.
  9. Sorry, I'm a lil bit paranoid with that lately...
  10. I see the 1st and 6th strings too close to the edge of the fretboard, I had the same problem in one of my builds, still playable but a couple of mm more makes the difference. Great work BTW, I love your guitars.
  11. One gets motivation wherever is necessary...
  12. I like very much the shape of this guitar, and the back carving is stunning... can't wait to see the whole thing. Why did you mask the neck? Is it going to have a different finish? How do you manage the transition?
  13. I've seen so many different ways to do that... I guess you can take the process in the order you feel more comfortable. My way to do the fretboard: - Slot - Taper - Bind - Glue - Flush neck sides to fretboard - Radius - Polish - Frets
