Haven’t decided what to use as filler.Either cuting out hard material like abalone.Or resin, maybe even with metal flakes and/or a matching color.
Routing out a leaf pattern on this rosewood fretboard
Finally finished.Only some minor details and a polish left to do 🙂
A few more pics of the semi-hollow and neck.Now with no masking tape.
Doing some high-speed fretwork.:-)
Current progress on the semi-hollow; Got the neck fretted, tuners fitted and fixed it to the body. I handcrafted a volume and tone control from the excess neck wood. The top is still not glued on. It’s held together by double sided tape. Beside that, I still have an installation of Bridge and stopbar/trem to do.Then a lot of fine sanding and details like fret markers and final clear coat before I can wrap this build up
Weight as it is now = 2.9 kg/6.4 lbs
The neck is going to be as beautiful as the rest of the guitar. 🙂
Making some curves in the semi-hollow horns. Both for looks, but mainly to get easy access to the lower frets.
Some still pictures of the current work.
Routing the trussrod channel in neck intended for the semi-hollow.
Got the sanding machine out today
The oscillating sander shouldn’t feel ignored either
