The bloodwood stripes in the neck blend in right now. But when this one gets oiled it should pop right out.


Scarf joint cut and prep

Lining this one up was a bit harder. It is going to be 7 inline so I needed the overhang.



I used a big screw clamp for this one and the small clamps on the outer edges.

Neck out of the clamps. Then a cut with the bandsaw and a trip through the jointer.

Neck blank... neck blank profiled. It was wide enough to build an 8 string out of. Probably should have converted it but I planned on (meaning parts are ordered) a 7 so it stays a 7.

Shot of the scarf. And repairing a crack in the ziricote. Ziricote is very brittle and prone to cracking. I am used to it though...remember the SG.

The neck monster doing its job. This saves me so much work when shaping out the necks. Also makes it much easier to maintain a consistant thickness all the way down the neck. I don't taper my necks much anymore as I like them to be thin all the way to the heal.

Fretboard repaired and ready for gluing. A shot of the lonely body awaiting the neck. And every clamp in the shop.

Damn. That's a lot of clamps.

Loving the grain on the fretboard.

This and your other build look to be coming along nicely. Good job!

Gluing a wing on the headstock to accommodate the new re-worked 7 string headstock.



Roughing in the headstock.

Cleaned up the heal and marked the body for the neck pocket. Then template mounted with double sided tape.

Neck pocket routed.



The neck pocket is cut at the end of the route. Leaving the heal longer on this build because I plan on blending the heal and neck like a neck

Once I trued the neck up it fit the route very nice. Had to push pretty hard to get it all together.



And the fit test passes. The reverse headstock gives the guitar an interesting look. Still needs a headplate.

The new 7 string pickup template. No margin for error on this one as the template fits the pickups very tight. I think I will call it a day and watch football.

Looking awesome man! Was wondering when we would see some more updates from you. I have never been a huge fan of Bloodwood myself, but I really think that top is going to look immense!

Good deals with: Enditol, itsallinmyh3ad, iliketoshred09, Hamatha, and many more on Rig-talk, HCAF, TGP and GC.

Updates will be fewer as the holidays are upon us.

This one gets a massive carve. Bloodwood is great for fretboards and neck lams. I am not sure about tops... we will find out. At least it doesn't really need a finish.

I am thinking black hardware for this one...
