This is my third body build and first neck. The neck is Birds Eye maple with a Cocobolo fretboard radiused to 7.25. The body is Spalted Maple on Black Limba. The odd coloring on the Spalt in CA to stabilize everything during the rough cut. I'd like to run it through the planer and take off an 1/8 or so from the top. Not sure if it will survive. May just plane by hand.
