Curtis P Posted August 17, 2004 Report Share Posted August 17, 2004 Hey Hey I am about to go buy the wood for my 7 string custom V this weekend, I found some really nice Poplar that yould have to be chopped and then book matched, but its only 1/2 inch thick, so it would probaly be the top, but what about basswood for the bottom?? i can get the basswood for 2 bucks a board foot (not planned or anything, rough cut, but very dry) I have access to 13 inch planer, jointer, bandsaw and I have my own table saw and router and drill press, I also have sand paper (lots of it!) I was also thinking about building the neck as well, I built the my RR neck, and so far its came out very well, its not radiused, i dont really like that feel, but fretting it was extremely difficult, mesuring, marking, re mesuring, you know, so it might be a possiblity to buy a pre-slotted fretboard and just shape the neck myself Any thoughts on wood neck? I am going for metal sound, Curtis Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
