On the router table, cleaned up the face of the peghead and finished the rest of the truss rod routing, and drilled the hole through the neck for the electronics (totally stoked, I drilled the diagonal by hand and managed to hit with my ¼” pilot hole dead on, then worked up to ½” total).

Then with a deep breath and a few carefully placed Dominos, glued the sucker up. Daniel is way stoked.

Thanks! I was kinda worried that the wood was too plain ‘til we used a wet paper towel to clean up the squeeze out and that quilting popped back out. All of a sudden it was “whoah, that’s gonna be sexy!”

A few bonus pix: The peg head milled down and the rest of the truss rod channel cut, drilling out the neck electronics channel, and Daniel setting up the Dominos on the body.
