    One piece neck with an angled headstock

    I think the problem is you end up loading the skunk stripe with all the force from the truss rod if you use a traditional one. I have a plan for dealing with that though. I think ive figured out how I'm gonna do it. I'll post a thread when I'm underway.

    One piece neck with an angled headstock

    Because I don't want to build a two piece.

    One piece neck with an angled headstock

    I'm thinking of just doing roasted maple as a trial run. I also want to try milling a channel before I cut the neck profile and pouring epoxy as binding.

    One piece neck with an angled headstock

    I'm thinking of attempting this with my next build. Anyone try it? I'm talking Fender style one piece with no fretboard. I know I'll need a pretty thick blank but I think it would be really cool to try.

    Built a Telebird body for my bud

    My bud hit me up about making him a Telebird body a few weeks back. The wife was working this weekend so I went up to the shop and was able to get the body made in one shot. This is my favorite kind of project, one where I don't have to do any sanding. Very nice walnut body blank sourced from...

    Les Paul CNC Build

    I really like the LMII stuff, not pinky at all Also, the new neck looks better but I still think you'd be better off making that section of the neck a block and carving it by hand. You still really don't have enough material there to make a proper volute and transition.

    Les Paul CNC Build

    OP, Looking at your headstock transition I don't think you've left enough material there to clean anything up. It looks like less material that a typical transition. I would replace the last inch of the neck profile with just a block and finish the transition with a rasp/file. I've seen a lot of...

    Les Paul CNC Build

    Yeah, modeling those transitions is not easy. I've been doing modeling work for pshupe and Balaguer guitars for a few years and I've finally figured out how to make a good, clean volute.

    Low Volume, High Quality Decal

    Whats a good source for a high quality decal? I have a quote for a half sheet but with setup its $85. I was hoping to spend a lot less than that.

    New Build, This Time its Personal

    It worked nicely, but like I said in the OP there really isn't the Z axis you'd need to use for guitar building IMO. More progress! I did the bulk of the sanding before I took these pics but there isn't really anything fun to show from that process. Tremolo centered in the route and holes...

    Cleaning up nut slot after gluing

    I've been going through amazon hoping to track down a file similar to the Stew Mac one with no luck :lol: I can stick with the stand paper and a block then. I've need been properly shown how to chisel, how would you guys go about it? I really don't want to knock the nut pocket out of square or...

    New Build, This Time its Personal

    Building myself a 24" scale guitar. Swamp ash body, roasted maple neck and ziracote fretboard. Big thanks to pshupe for sourcing the cutting the fretboard. Its gonna be super rad. Using my buddy's CNC to rough out the body and some templates. He's Z axis is to short to properly route the body...

    Avoiding glue in fret slots when binding

    How do you guys avoid filling the slots with glue when you bind? Also, what do you do to clean it when you get some in? Exacto?

    Cleaning up nut slot after gluing

    How do you guys go about cleaning up the nut slot/area after you glue on the fretboard? I've used a chisel or a standing block in the past but I'm not 100% with my results. I'd love to buy the stew mac file but $50 seems a little steep for it.
