I've been wanting to build a whole instrument(Last time I just bought a neck) I think I can just about hack a body After reading a few guides, heres the order that I understand is the way to do it. Glue neck laminates> Plane/sand> Cut taper of neck with saw/router> Glue on fretboard>(Cut headstock) Carve back of neck> (cut fret slots> Radius) > inlays/binding> Fret> setup/Fret level. My question is, when do I taper the fretboard? Should I do it before I glue it on? Or do I switch the order around and glue it on and then taper the whole thing? OR, are fretboard blanks already pre-tapered?
