Buter Posted December 17, 2015 Report Share Posted December 17, 2015 So I'm sitting in a pub, 3,500 miles from my shop and the guitar within, and I'm trying to think through each step needed to complete the little beastie. I'm shocked at how many times I've needed to go back and add or re-order things. I appreciate that a neck through with a top is probably the most difficult electric we build, but I'd love to see/know if any of y'all have a fairly regimented build process port your builds. I've seen Loius's, which is great for a basic set neck (I'm only saying basic as it only includes the big steps, not that his guitars are basic - they're awesome!). Ive already managed to make things difficult for myself on my first comeback guitar, and I'd like to keep that from happening in the future. I think it would be great if everyone put some thought into this and came up with some fairly definitive workflows and the reasons behind them. There will obviously be different trains of thought on why some steps come before others and there will be different flow patterns based on the many acceptable ways there are to build guitars (just read a very good post last night by a chap who frets the board and shapes the neck as different pieces, then marries them up with minimal clamping). When I figure out my flow, I'll be sure to post it up as well, more for correction than instruction! Cheers Buter Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
