Starting on my first bass guitar. This should be interesting.

Neck blank has been sitting for 6 months and I am now going to start work on it. Doing a headstock scarf with headplate and possibly a backstrap.


  1. Will the melted top be CNC or from a scroll saw?

  2. Well the CNC isn't going to be here soon so probably scroll sawed.
