This is my first build and up to this point everything has been going well. Tonight I made some rough cuts for the thickness of the neck, and discovered in nearly exactly the weakest part of neck (right in the truss rod route, and very near the nut) a dime sized knot that I could not see from either side of the wood when I picked it. I spent nearly 4o bucks on the wood for the neck and would hate to chuck it. Though if its trashed, I'll just shorten it and make a baritone guitar.... Anyway any thoughts? My camera is terrible, and I cant get a reasonable detail picture, but here is a general view of what I've got and an attempt at the knot. The knot is right in the middle of the center walnut lamination on the neck. Thanks a lot everyone.
