    Help with neck plane please!

    gotcha, thanks! My R7 is actually 14, which is perfect. in that case, I could take a couple more passes with the router at the same angle and both the height above the bridge will come down and I will meet the binding intersection at the front.

    Help with neck plane please!

    Yes that’s right. I took some measurements with the fretboard. Right now the height above the body with the straight edge at the bridge is 37/64’s plus 3/64 for frets is 40/64ths or 5/8ths. In millimeters that’s 15.8 (for us Canadians lol). The angle on my metal gauge looks like 3.7-3.8...

    Help with neck plane please!

    Hey all, My gut is telling me to check on this before I go any further. Hah. Seems a little off to me. so I have a neck plane routed with angle of between 4.3 and 4.4 degrees according to my digital level (can’t trust 100%). the route comes out at the back of the neck pickup and looks ok on...

    Builds that just keep going wrong

    My current build has been a total pain in the butt. 6 years of on and off building. Where do I start... While gluing the top on, I had a backerboard on there with carpet tape. Warmed it up to assist the hide glue, but the tape soaked into the grain of the back and tore out a big chunk of...
