« Part 6: Late update... Part 7 of Electric Bass Guitar.. series no next part

Very quick update on the guitar… Johnathan has been rather busy galavanting around the South East and down to the Gold Coast…
Got him back into the workshop on Wednesday and started the final shaping of the back of the neck…..

Used a half inch radius round over bit to scarf out the rough shape… leaving quite a large quirk…

I gave Johnathan a rasp and told him to remove all the timber that did not look like a guitar neck… HMM sound a little like Mr Miyagi

He had a lot of fun

and the end result was impressive.
Getting so much closer…
So until next week….
