My brother-in-law is a very good woodworker (for 23), and he gets it genetically. He is getting ready to build his first g#$%ar. He ordered one of the Carvin neck through pieces because he knew he didn't want to try to make a neck on his first try. Does anyone have any experience with the Carvin neck-throughs? Are there other places that sell completely finished neck-through pieces? The wood he ordered for the wings is Mahogony back/core, 1/8" Maple, 1/8" Wenge, and a 1/4" Curly Redwood top from Gallery Hardwoods. I think he will do well. He is going to glue up a mock version to practice carving on. Unfortunately his dad moved away and took all of the great woodworking tools away. What brand or kind of chisel's are good? If this turns out well, I am definitely having him make me a bass. Any help is appreciated and I will keep you posted on the progress.
