hi .. sexy Lex Luthier ^^

i use finish NC Lacquer.

i think NC Lacquer finish is good to neck.. but not good on body..

NC Lacquer is not stronng.. but smooth..

next time i will finish neck on NC Lacquer.

thank AlexVDL.

but i think that is not enable..

because of shipping cost will more expensive than wood..

so it it no good..

my teacher buy cocobolo $120 but Shipping cost & Tax is $120..

in USA, Canada that is no problem. but other nation is problem with shipping cost & Tax.

and my wood is not korea Maple..

this is Canada Maple.

my customer buy it canada or USA,

yesterday i make strat neck template.

template is maple neck blank..

use knife, bandsaw, planner,

and ended making template. i make strat neck use bandsaw & router.

it it more easy.. ^^

but i think use template is easy to make strat head.. but router is no need to make neck stright..

use spokeshave is more easy to neck stright ..








i have new my working room..

i work after officejob is ended, or weekend full time..

i'am happy to get my new woking room.

monthly rent payment is $250..

my 4th guitar project is wait for arrial dot inay.. so.. i practice strat neck .. use making template..
