Love watching these come together... I just might take the leap and try building something for myself in the near future.

Great work!

Cheers,
Joe

I love the look but are you really going to have to body start at the 12th fret? That seems way too low to me. LP's start @ the 17th and even that can restrict access to some of the higher frets.

There is a great deal of carving to do at the back and in effect the neck will feel as normal all the way up to the 21st. I hope with it being a set neck that the heel will not effect access and should make the guitar more playable than the normal bolt on with my usual heel.

Sounds good. I tend to wrap my thumb over the neck (big hands) and always have trouble up high unless it's a nice double cut.:food-smiley-004:

I can't do the wrap over thumb thing hands to small.

Hi Mr Tones likewise I enjoy seeing what you are up to.
The guitars have taken a bit of a back seat at the moment all basses in my order book so working on them for the most part.
