    I love it when 3D printers occasionally live up to their promise.

    And is that real or engineered rosewood? Given my current build, I have become very interested in how people deal with the engineered stuff.

    It's real rosewood, this neck is from a couple of years ago.

    My printer is a little cheapy from Officeworks, and apart from a terrible GUI it's been a pretty solid unit. I've fixed a lot of stuff with it.

    Some guys I know have much better machines and what they get out of them is incredible. I'm also involved in a project where we have a printer farm producing our own 'interlocking brick system for tabletop gaming' based on my designs. If the project lead ever gets over his anxiety about releasing details I'll share it on here, its pretty cool.
    Build 1 - Shoegazer MK1 JMA-1
    Build 2 - The Relliecaster TL-1
    Build 3 - The Black Cherry SG AG-1
    Build 4 - The Sonicaster TL-1ish
    Build 5 - The Steampunker Bass YB-4
    Build 6 - The Howling Gowing ST-1

    This is engineered rosewood. It came on my TL1-R kit and I got another one from ebay.

    I'm doing a 7.25: radius on it and using F&W mahogany stain to darken it.
    I'll seal it with clear spray on lacquer that I use on the rest of the neck but probably sand it matt.

    cheers, Mark.

    The tabletop gaming design sounds very interesting. That's a hobby I wish I had time to develop. But since the only way to make time would be to drop electronics or guitar, it's probably not going to happen. And if the design is something you plan to sell at some stage you are right to keep it under wraps.

    Interesting. I sealed my board with thin CA based on advice from Sonic and Simon. I still have work to do on getting an even finish on it (currently uneven sanding around the frets) but it feels as smooth as silk. My hope is for a smooth fretboard that doesn't grab strings but still looks like rosewood.
