January 15, 2017


Now then! Black Korina, Ziricote, Bare Knuckles, Hipshot and Gotoh 510's....what could be better?


We pulled this out of the stack for the fingerboard...mmmmm, nice! 





















Got it slotted 

























One of our favourites....the gorgeous Black Korina or Limba or Afara.....whatever takes you.
























The body blank sand to thickness....beautiful grain pattern
























going to strengthen the neck with a carbon rod - a piece running other side of the truss rod

















carbon rods in! nice figure in that neck piece.

























building the headstock

























gluing on that lovely Ziricote fingerboard


















so we are ready to carve! this neck is down as a soft 'V'


















using a microplane to carve in the neck and headstock ends


















heres the neck ready to be fully carved with templates for a soft 'V' to check the carve as it progresses

















here it is! look at the graining on these pieces....its going to be really nice this one.
