Back of the neck profiled.
Scarf joint close up and headstock.
Electronics cavity routed and laid out.
Time to carve. Burl is relatively soft so I am using a 100 grit paper on the sander for the carve.
Finishing up the carve.
I trimmed up the heal area so that it is more comfortable... now I need to adjust the neck to it.
About ready for the neck glue in. Just need to look it over a few more times before committing to it.
Carve turned out well. The burl causes optical illusions and make it seem rougher than it is in places.
I am going to have to deal with the knots and inclusion at some point. I have new System Three epoxy to try on these.
Last shots before glue up.
