Blackdog Posted September 30, 2007 Report Share Posted September 30, 2007 While I'm still waiting for the neck I commissioned for my number 1 build (it should be ready, but they say they need at least 4 more weeks), yesterday I scored something interesting: I got at a guitar show, from a former builder, a rough neck that might be just the ticket: One piece heavily flamed maple with an amazing quilt/bridseye maple fingerboard. It's rough cut, the back is still squared, it has already been profiled and has a paddle headstock already thicknessed, and it even has a veneer applied already. The TR has been installed and the fretboard is already glued on. This last thing might be the problem though, since the fretboard must still be slotted and radiused but the sides are not parallel anymore.... I was considering making some kind of miter-box for my future fretting jobs, but I always though of rectangular fretboards, any ideas on how to do this in this case ?? Thanks for your help.
