Hi all, nearly there on the second build.

There are a few new things to me on this build:

I’m using some local wood, Queensland maple body and Blackwood neck.  

Also trying the contoured neck joint / heal carve.

The truss rod is an upside down spoke wheel with adjustment through the fretboard. Must remember to turn the opposite direction to normal  

It’s 24 fret, to give me a slightly deeper neck pocket for gluing strength.

9011B166 C2D0 4CCF 8369 CB773C54A8D2
53826817 1417 4817 82E1 E10D58A0B3C5
0F5B9003 D05B 4A1B B815 F262FA0CE263

Will have a single p90 when finished. 

Looking forward to playing it, but that means I have to start a new one so not in too much of a hurry. 

Cheers

Blake

Will do. Yeah youtube is where I found his stuff too. 

I'll stick with Liberon oil, I think Mark recommends that for an oil finish and I used it on my bandsman build.  Not game to play with colour yet 🙂

I like what you did with the truss rod access.... 👍 

Measure once, cut straight away and maybe you're lucky......

Few more screws needed, but I’m calling this one done.

@blake 

Good looking I like simple lines 

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