Huge thank you to all those that voted to get a Mirka sander, what a difference that made. So this is it, sanded and a finally took the plunge and glued the neck in. Obviously I was terrified and obviously as it's me it's not perfectly straight but it's far straighter than it would have been if I hadn't measured and remeasured the neck pocket fit and readjusted for that. Feeling pretty proud of myself right now as it really does resemble a 'guitar'ย 

Onto the bridge holes, of which I have a question in the question section.

Cheers guys it really does mean a lot and spurs me on more than I can tell you. I'm determined to finish before the early nights set in and the Scottish weather is upon us, winter is coming.

@cheesewhiskย 

Your build is looking very good compared to the other ones in the photo

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.
