    One of the other things I picked up while assessing the neck for the new board was how much of a step exists at the pocket/heel transition.



    This is (to me at least) a really aesthetically poor look.
    Given the position of the neck studs there isnít a lot of leeway to graduate the body profile; it is squared off quite abruptly through that area. The pencil line represents the end of the neck pocket, and I feel the neck transition can brought back closer to that line, if not all the way to it.
    Obviously this will be better executed after the new board is on and roughed to final shape.

    So next take will be slotting the blank and getting it mounted and bonded. Stay tuned!
