Building the neck.

I started with  1×3 quartersawn Honduran Mahogany and planed it down to 13/16″ and then cut  the 8″ headstock  from one end. I reversed it and glued it back to the neck blank with a scarf joint using Aliphatic-resin to create a 12 degree angle. Next I used the same Mahogany stock to make a stacked heel. This neck will be joined to the body with a bolt-on  using barrel bolts.

The scarf joint on the neck is glued using many clamps on a neck jig that I built.
