    Looking good Sonic. And thanks for posting such a good diary. It gives me inspiration that I may be able to do my own scratchy one day!

    A little more progress. Weekend has been mostly taken up with a big spring cleaning effort so not a lot of time for guitar tinkering.

    I finished off the fretboard radius, brought all the fret slots down to a more acceptable depth and started on the neck carve.

    The Queensland maple is beautiful to work with, the carving is very satisfying. I'm just going by my rough mark up and feel, while comparingi it to a Squire neck I have here for general direction. It's getting pretty close, but I'll have another session on it I think to bring it down a little further. Starting to look like a proper neck now though!



















    Need to start thinking about the fretmarkers now.

    That's definitely starting to look like a neck. Looking great. Love the Maple fretboard with the red of the body!

    Decided to fit up the neck so I can finalise some more holes in the body. This is one of the areas of my design I don't think I got quite right. There isn't a lot of heel set into the body and limited real estate for the screws. In the end it has worked OK and I think it's fine, but I am definitley changing it for V2, just cause I'm a bit paranoid about the strenght of the joint. Anyway, ferrules recessed and screws shortened. Now I can locate the bridge, extend the swimming pool route and work out my control cavity cover before I finalise the finishing.

    Also did a bit more carving on the neck, little bit more to go I think.

    Love the colour combo and watching this whole build come together, gives me hope for doing my own scratch build.
