Short version: I shape the two 'ends' of the carve with a half-round rasp, facet the neck (mark out straight lines to follow, remove wood between them, until it's vaguely the right shape), generally using a microplane rasp, smooth out the countours with saidsame rasp, sometimes a file, sometimes a japanese hacksaw rasp, clean up/fine tune with scrapers and sandpaper.

Even more basically: remove wood until it feels like a neck, and make sure all the lines are smooth, even and straight. Sanding blocks helpful.
