Roundover Before Or After Contours?


Recommended Posts

yep, before. The reason being that you'll probably use a rounding-over router bit with a guide bearing...if you've drilled a jack socket hole in the side of the guitar the bearing will fall into it, if you've contoured the body the router will not have a flat base to work on.

Round over first, contour, drill & route neck pockets after
