Scalloped Neck

Recommended Posts

i know how to build a neck and ive read up on scalloping a neck, but i have a question. whn i build the neck how do i avoid making the scallops too close to the truss rod? i want to use a stew mac 2 way rod and i was wondering if i could rout the channel a bit deeper and then put a peice of wood atop the rode then do the fret board thing.

just dont go past the fretboard when acalloping: the scallops don't need to be very deep to be functional anyhow

Jeez, even remotely going near the end of the fretboard when scalloping is really too much.

Unless obviously you want to end like the scallopwned guy on guitar.com :D

Check out Brians scalloping tutorials on the ProjectGuitar homepage
