What's The Best Way To Shaoe The Sides Of A Neck ...


Recommended Posts

I'm going to attempt a strat-style neck and I have an unprofiled Stewmac fretboard and a rectangular neck blank. I'm not sure of the best way to cut the sides of the neck to get the proper taper/profile from the nut to the bottom/21st fret area. What do you recommend?

Make a neck template by double taping down some straight wood at the correct taper on some MDF, then bearing follow the straight wood, and voila, neck template. Then use that on the neck wood with the bearing bit again.


ps: this text-tutorial I just put up on making body and neck templates may help you:
