A quick update, the neck came back from the luthier yesterday. It looks and feels fine, although the top of the neck is slightly heavier than I remember. Not noticably heavy, but just as if more material was added, which I assume was the case. I have been busy at work finishing the contour.
Looking better now! I still need to even it in some areas, shape the heel and add in the neck angle.
I basically used a small electric sander for the bulk, and I am now in the process of using a rasp, spokeshave and sandpaper to finish it off
My favourite picture so far
A little mark near the top...don't worry it will be fixed.
Still need to remove the marking lines, but that's the easy bit!
Bit of slight damage in some areas but nothing a little sandpaper and elbow grease can take care of. She's looking alright if you ask me! Those last ones are taken on one of my friend's project. Any thoughts?
More pics soon
