Thread: ES kit when to glue the neck

    ES kit when to glue the neck

    Hello everyone,
    quick question, but for some reason I cannot find the answer yet.

    When should I glue the neck to the body for an ES build?
    I plan on staining the guitar with a water stain and then finish with a lacquer.

    Should I glue the neck first and then stain or vice versa.

    You can do it either way. If you fit it before finishing itís just a bit more awkward to handle, but you will have a more continuous finish. If you do it separately, itís easier to work on, just note where you will be glueing and donít stain or finish that part of the heel/pocket.
