scott from _actual time_ Posted June 22, 2004 Report Share Posted June 22, 2004 i'm building a neck-thru V -- carvin neck, maple wings. if it was a strat shape or anything else on a neck-thru neck, of course i'd glue the square wings onto the neck extention first and then route the body shape. but since it's a V, i'm thinking about rough cutting the wings before i glue them onto the neck. it would be easy to rough cut them first, since it's just a few straight cuts with a power saw to rough the V shape. i could use the angled scrap from those cuts as cauls to clamp the wings when i glue them. also, if i rough cut first, i could get the grain on the wings going this way //// on the upper wing and \\\\ on the lower, like Jehle's V body in this thread: http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.ph...wtopic=8782&hl= [nice work, btw!] on mine, i'd have the neck extension in the middle with the grain going ||||, but i still think the //// |||| \\\\ would look cool [and be stronger on the wings]. i would have to rough cut the wings before gluing to get that grain pattern. anybody got any opinions one way or the other? or no opinion at all? thanks in advance.
