goat Posted January 11, 2007 Report Share Posted January 11, 2007 So I glue the Headstock to my neckthru Bass, and as I check the top where the fretboard attaches the angle is a hair off.Now I realised I should have checked it FIRST.Yeah I know,I`m a... (FILL IN THE BLANK HERE). I made my own scarf jig and faced the angles very nicely. Now I figure out where it went off. My neckthru has an angled neck.I made that angle with neck taper before I did the scarf joint,so now when I put the neck in my router jig with the headstock(same thickness end to end) at the same time as neck(different thickness end to end),and route,the angle is a hair different on one than the other= Bad Scarf Well Thank God I caught it right away.I pulled it apart and quickly wiped all the glue off.It could have been a disaster. Today I fixed it and it has glued up nicely. Here`s the Joke part... "My first guitar didn`t have a headstock,how was I supposed to know!"
