26 Muinarc 4 days ago Hello,I just make the plunge and bought raw body and neck of a super axe, to build it as a lefty model.... I'm looking for informations about the guitar :is the body flat or carved ? It seems almost flat, for a first time build I think it will be better for me if the body was flat like let's say, a Rickenbacker...What kind of truss rod to fit ? I will probably go for a heel "spoke nut" style, for the ease of fitting and it will leave the headstock free of truss rod cover... I will then need to let a little space between the fretboard and the neck pickup...If the raw body turns ok, I would love to do a light cherry finish like this one : Link Any advices are welcome The top and back are quite arched. The originals used a Burns "gearbox" truss rod adjusted at the heel of the neck from the back of the guitar.
