I'm building a fretless 5 string partial neck-through(build thread to come when I have acquired all the parts). I'm currently waiting on the alder body blank to arrive. My idea(since I'm using 3/4" X 1 1/2" pieces of mahogany and 1/4" X 1 1/2" maple glued up as such: mahog/maple/mahog/maple/mahog) is to have the neck going all the way through a pocket on the body that will probably be 1 1/4" deep by the time the wood is jointed square. The pocket will either go all the way to the end of the body or stop under the bridge(Schaller 5 string roller bridge). I also have a fingerboard question. I got a morado fingerboard from LMI pre-radiused to 16". Is there anything I have to do to this board besides sawing/planing the width taper and gluing it to the neck? Any harm in doing this before I get the body wood?
