Plotting out the neck is always kind of fun. A straight line down the middle, Mark the nut location and the 14th fret where the neck joins the body, Measure 1 1/2 inches wide at the nut and 1 3/4 wide at the 12th fret and finally the shape of the peg head, and now you are ready for the band saw.
#177 on the right, and #178 on the left are ready for their bindings. I bent the binding a couple of days ago when I bent the sides, so there is nothing holding us back.
and here are parts for the next build, #s 179 and 180. The little guy is to be a long neck concert, A concert body with a tenor neck. Interesting huh?
Lets get the bindings on 177 and 178. The long clamp is to deal with the binding at the upper end where I cannot get sticky tape on it. This special luthiers tape has a very high level of tackiness and stretches a bit too, Great for keeping the binding tight in the cut slot.
The bindings are on. the tape will come off in the morning, and then the work with plane, scraper and sand paper begins.
