I did a little research on the "Jacarandá" fretboard, thought it was kind of interesting.
"The name [Jacaranda] is also applied to several tree species of the genera Machaerium and Dalbergia in the pea family, the sources of commercial rosewood."

Sounds way more badass than "rosewood"

I'm sorry about not having any updates on this...

College hit me hard and I'm failing miserably on all tests. I'm studying like a freak and I have almost no free time. I need to find some automotive paint catalog so I can choose a color for my guitar, but I can't find a paint shop that works with car paint (polyurethane) close to where I live or study. Then it's off to the painting booth. But before that I have to build the freaking neck! And I didn't even buy the woods yet! Or the fretboard! Or the pickups and electronics! Or everything!!!

I really would do that exact setting (maple + sunburst) but I couldn't keep the original finish. I was really bummed to remove that finish. For such a "cheap" guitar, it was really nicely done.

But sorry, I'm aiming for B standard and lower tunings. So I'm sticking with the baritone scale. And a sunburst finish is too much hasle for me to get done, so I'll just stick with a basic paintjob. But I'll try to see if I can find some exquisite kinds (metallic, opalescent, etc...)

Sunbursts are not that hard, you just need to dispose of ....loads of time and wood to try it out on but since college is being a bitch on you, it's better if you stick with the easier and less time consuming

By the way man..try getting a long plank of jacaranda and carve the neck out of it Rosewood necks are the ....

"UPDATE! Apparently nobody gives a .... soooooooooooo .... him!"

ok.. I got wood...



















for the neck, that is...

Here they are, along with the stock neck, which I made a test run with the black dye to see how it works... (Next is refretting and half scalloping it)




Got some Ivory and Cedar (ppl ran outta mahogany )... Will be letting them aclimate outside for a couple of weeks... Can't wait! (actually I can, because I'm getting gang raped by college.. haha)

I got major wood. Seriously...
Although I got COMPLETELY ANALLY ....ED IN THE ....ING ASSHOLE WITH A GIANT DILDO WRAPPED IN (-)8000000000 GRIT SAND PAPER AND RAZOR BLADES BY CUSTOMS, yeah, like I got ripped off pretty bad (not from LMI, but from customs), like USD$60 more, I got this marvelous bloodwood fingerboard from LMI slotted for a 28.59" scale!

My only concern is that I think that there wasn't too much space left for the nut. At least for me. Am I trippin?

Just a point about the woods ...
The real "Jacaranda" loved by luthiers is the Dalbergia, that is called " Brazilian Rosewood" or " Jacaranda da Bahia", just ask the classic guitar players ... others are others, but you have the Indian Rosewood ....
The Cedar that Leandro said doesn´t have anything with the North America Cedar, with is coniferous tree. The Cedar that where used is the Brazilian Red Cedar ( also wrong called Pinkwood ), more similar to mahogany ( but more bright) and to Australian Cedar ...

Definitely not. AND it shouldn't even GO THROUGH the body, at all!!

But, being an "el cheapo" guitar, it's berable.

Did you even notice the "swimming pool" routing job? LOL!!!!

The only improvement I actually got was getting the body primed!



The lack of parts, time, and tools made this project pretty impossible... I might abandon the idea of making a neck from scratch, just work on the old one, and put this .... to drop Z hahah

SO...

I've abandoned the idea of making a new neck. Now, I'll refret and renew the old neck, paint the guitar, finish the pickguard, and put it back together...

Yeeah!

(making this NON baritone... )

Removed all the frets from the neck!
I'll now sand it with a 20" radius. I'm still thinking about what kind of frets to put.

Cool fretless fretboard (lol wut?)



Cool flames on the neck
