101 Mike2000 3 weeks ago Thank you guys! I must say I'm surprising myself with how this is turning out so far. Everything is going really well and the set backs are mostly minor, to be expected, and fixable. I'm going slow and try to make logical steps to keep on going and I check youtube and my books a lot to find my way in this project. Indeed I did invest a lot of time preparing prior to the build, and invested in tools needed to get the job done. There's a huge rabbit hole as I found out, and I had to find out what tools work for me and stay within my budget. The project is very time consuming figuring stuff out for the first time so I guess the second build will take less time.Some more shaping of the neck:Marked out with a pencil to keep track of where I've been filing.It's getting smooth!Still needs a little tweaking but it's almost good to go. So I can start prepping for frets and finish soon.
