Thanks a lot man! This really is an exceptional peice of buckeye burl. Finding pieces like this is fairly difficult to do as most have such large bark inclusions and pieces missing that they are not usable as a guitar top, and many others have been sawn to thin for a carved top. To find one like this that is thick enough to carve and is large enough for a one piece top is pretty rare.

not to much to report on today. I did more work on the belly cut and some refining on the top, but I only snapped off one photo. Very soon I'll start shaping the neck and doing the fretwork.

Hey guys, I am just about finished with the neck. I started shaping it a few days ago and yesterday I finished the neck carve. It is a fairly thick neck (which is how i personally like them). The piece of curly walnut I choose turned out great and looks absolutely beautiful. Sometime this afternoon I'm probably going to start doing the remaining fretwork. The frets are a medium jumbo nickel/silver wire.

Nice work Shad. Just wondering - what do you use to fill voids in burl tops?
Anddd... Is that green plane you used for the scarf joint a Stanley 100 1/2?

For filling voids I used to use z-poxy, but I have since started using super glue instead. once the super glue is dry it stops shrinking and you can sand it flush for a smooth surface, but given time the z-poxy keeps gassing off and and will continue to shrink and leave little divets in the wood. The super glue is more user freindly in general, easy to apply, and less messy.

As for the plane it is listed in lee valley as "palm plane" but I dont think it is from stanley though.

yupp, just normal super glue, not the two part stuff. I use titebond brand super glue, not the greatest glue ever but works quite well as a filler though. I like the titebond because its pretty good quality for not being a two part glue, and it also has a very low viscosity so air bubbles and stuff are very unlikely to get trapped. works great and you dont have to waste time and money with the expensive two part adhesives.

Funny, never heard of anyone using that! Most guys I know opt for some sort of epoxy... Worth a try though

yeah its a little unconventional. I know that lots of folks seem to have really good luck with epoxy but my experience has been that it is very viscous so it doesn't penetrate very deep which I think is pretty important with unstable woods like buckeye burl, or spalted woods, and it also can cause it to trap air bubbles. for me its just easier to work with super glue. I have used z-poxy a couple times and my problem with it is that it keeps shrinking over time. Personally I don't know how to combat that problem other than to use something else. I have seen a 5000 dollar buckeye topped bass before that had that same shrinking problem and to me that is absolutely unacceptable on a high end instrument.

Well it's getting down close to time for laying down the finish, now I've just got do all the tedious sanding to get it ready. It's still available for sale if anyone out there is interested.
