GREGMW Posted April 11, 2004 Report Share Posted April 11, 2004 Hi, I want to build a Tele style neck,I have a piece of maple 700 x 100 & 16mm thick. It has been machined .I also have a piece of maple for a fretboard & it is 7mm thick. (Somebody advised me to build this with a glued on fretboard because its easier than a one piece neck???) I have traced out a Tele neck BUT I cant see this being real accurate! Should I draw & measure this out instead if tracing it? After having all of the above where do I start? Should I make a template of the whole neck or mark it out on the maple? How do I set out the radius of the neck? Whats the best way to shape it? I had a look at the tutorials and there is some great info but not quite what I was after.I have a couple of books but they do seem to skimp over neck building or they dont relate to what I am building. Any info or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Greg Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
