So I need to order a body blank, neck blank and pre slotted & radiused fretboard, anyone know what kind of lead time there is from the guitarmaking.co.uk shop please, couldn’t find anything that said?
Also if there are other UK sources for blanks you’d recommend please let me know?

Also if there are other UK sources for blanks
There are numerous other UK suppliers but I’d suggest that you email Mark and Carol and ask how they are fixed for shipping products at the moment. Don’t compromise your build schedule but at least give them the opportunity to fulfil your requirements by offering them first refusal.
Post some photos of your design if you like. The side play in the hinge shouldn’t be too much of a problem as you need to clamp the neck down and that should be enough. When in doubt, try it out I say. You can always change the hinge if it bothers you.
