Wenge Neck

In case you’ve been wondering! Here are a few pictures of the Standard Plus; the wenge neck has turned out really well. It was hard work to shape it; the wenge doesn’t like spokeshaves and I had to use a rasp for virtually all of the shaping but visually it was certainly worth the effort. I love the whole dark look and the relic finish tuners that I’m going to use will look spot on.

I posted these photos on the Mandolin Café forum and was blown away by the kind comments that my fellow luthiers left- all greatly respected craftsmen. You can read them towards the end of this page.
