S906 work begins...

S906 #1 & #2

Maple/Cocobolo neck attached to a super thin Sapele/Exotic topped body with hipshot parts and custom pickups.
Aiming for dark fast shreader 6 strings light enough to enjoy.

Neck : Maple/Cocobolo
Fretboard : Cocobolo
Scale : 25.5
Frets : 24
Trussrod : ALLPARTS

Body : Sapele/Exotic (33mm)
Tuners : Hipshot
Pickups : Diablo 6 Strings && Destroyer 6 Strings
Bridge : Hipshot
Electronics : 1 Vol 3-way

Start with a neck blank. These were really hard to square up because the flame maple tears out with the jointer. The drum sander had to do all the heavy lifting. Going back to using 1.5" neck blanks and peeling the headstock from the back of the neck for these builds. Allows me to keep the stripes straight.

The neck blank was 2 inches short of making 2 necks without scarfs. Since I ended up with one blank scarfed I need some accents.

Got them lined up and glued.
