Ok, I have started my second build a couple months ago. Basically it's the same specs as my first bass, with some changes. This will be a 4 string fretless neckthru. scale is around 32". and the neck is at an angle from the body.
the neck is of one piece, this is halfway through planing:
this wood used to be a fence, I have no idea what it is, but it should be stable.
body wings come out of this board:
this here is called pinotea and it seems to me it might be douglas fir or something similar. Here's a thread about it by the way: pinotea
so I first got that neck planed and squared, and then got a piece of pinotea and glued it under the body section of the neckthru:
When that was dry, I started planing the front of the neck in the body area, to give it the angle. Squeared the sides, and cut out a piece of pinotea to cover the neckthru on the front.
planed that piece of wood and glued it to the front:
before this I had cut for the scarf joint.
Try to make sure I know where the center is...
planed the scarf joint, and measured again...
and glued the scarf joint
more to come... thanks for looking!
