This week has seen Ian’s neck carved and the guitar get its
big clean-up prior to French polishing.
You can see my favourite tools for neck carving below.
I like to carve my necks last of all. At this point the
fingerboard is on and fretted and you can get a really good feel for what the
finished instrument will be like to play.
And here we are ready for grain filling………….
I’ve added a few more instruments to my archive blog
please take a look if you’re interested. And if you have one of my old guitars
(pre-digital cameras era!) I’d be delighted to see a photo of you and the instrument so
that I can include it.
