go here for free guitar plans

Also if you go to my site and click on Global Wood Sourse they have a guitar gallery with “Through Body” necks, the best and strongest way to make a guitar. Also, I have a diagram for “scalloping” the neck so you don’t have to put metal frets.

I went through the backside instead of the front, I didn’t want to hide the wood in front with a big pick guard. You’ll notice the black cover on the back , that’s where the wiring is.

I’m sorry I didn’t give a very good explanation yesterday. I routed out the rear access so the thickness of the front was 1/4”, in order to install the switches, & Pots. Then I drilled a hole at an angle through the rear pickup holes toward the wiring cavity to run the wires. The hole between the 2 pickups was drilled with a long bit through the neck attachment hole.
