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

    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.

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