and scafed neck joint ?

Gibson styles neck is too many broken head.. and loose wood..

and wait for 3 week.. seasonning. for neck wood..

and radius and fretting..

and finish will Lacquer(?) .. and use spray Gun..

Mockingbird is the finest shape B.C. Rich have come up with. It's going to look great.

Why did the customer want a spruce back? Did he have a piece already?

Hopefully you will at least 'break even' (not make money, but not lose money) on this guitar, but even if you lose a little bit, it's probably not a bad idea to get a guitar into the public. Maybe he will recommend you to some friends, and you can charge more.

If you 'break even', you get to practice making a guitar without paying for the materials, at least.

hyunsu, as always you do excellent work. That is a great looking guitar and the figuring in the maple is intense. I have played a couple electric guitars with spruce for the back or top and the result is a good one. The spruce is light and resonant. I am sure your client will love it.

You got it, exactly, hyunsu!

"break even" means that you are not losing money, even if you are not making money.

Looks like a great project!
