bugman96 Posted August 28, 2005 Report Share Posted August 28, 2005 (edited) Here's a rough sketch of the guitar I'm going to build (my first): http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/bugman_96/de...9&.dnm=50bc.jpg I'm going to redraw it tomorrow making sure everything is squared and the lines are straight, etc...but you get the idea. Horizontal red line is where the saddles will be. and are my questions: Will I run into trouble using a compound radius neck ( 7-1/4" to 9-1/2", from USACG) and a telecaster bridge? I don't want a pickguard so I'm going to route a control cavity in the back. It's not going to have a top glued on so I'm wondering about how to go about routing/drilling so the pickups' wires can hookup with the control cavity. I've read that the nut should be radiused to match the radius of the fingerboard at the nut. Since I don't have the right tools, I'm thinking about getting a pre-cut curved bottom nut from Stewmac. Will this work with the 7 1/4" radius? Many thanks in advance. (I have some scrap cedar I'm going to practice building it with too).
