If a taped razor blade isn't quite wide enough, you might try a utility knife blade; they're wider.
That's just the 'photo op' and small stuff bench; the big messy stuff takes place in the garage:
What the hell is wrong with me?? (Yes, the fuzzy one spins).
What a crazy, fun build. Functionally, it works just like an electric guitar should; ergonomically, it's a freakin' nightmare to play,...
Mounted the tuners and blended the neck spine into the neck heel today.

Ya, I rebuilt the front suspension and added the disc brakes right after I bought it 6 years ago, because I planned to drive the wheels off it. I...
Thanks, and yes, there's a car-related theme to these latest builds. It's a '65 (Falcon) Ranchero, factory 289 V8 4 speed car.
Got a lot done today- cut the neck pocket, attached the neck to the internal 'spine', mounted the neck to the body, and mounted the pickup and the...
After I shaped & sealed it, I'm having second thoughts about using this GFS neck on the build- it's just too nicely quartersawn for a novelty...
New idea for the headstock design- mask & spray black oil drips from each tuner:
I'm trying to figure out what the fretboard material is; it looks like it's made of layers, like rosewood 'plywood'. Any thoughts?
The GFS neck finally got here, and it's a really nice piece of straight grain maple. The fretboard is some kind of engineered wood-ish material,...
I'm sure it's not a '65; the neck heel is the newer type. And if the tuner holes have been drilled larger, you might think about using conversion...
I agree with Nigel; a batwing pickguard and some 3-on-a-plate tuners with white buttons could cover a lot of sins.
Cut & fitted the inner structure today, and glued in the end portions:

I'm wondering if the previous owner may have sanded the finish off the neck, then re-sprayed it with cheap paint before selling it.
Got the back opened up, and it doesn’t look like this can ever had oil in it. Also cut out for the P90 pickup:

Enough parts are showing up that I can do a mock up. By adjusting how far I set the neck into the body, I can locate the pickup and the bridge...
