Re: Awesome Neck Shaping Jig


The only problem I see is the neck is the same all the way from nut to heal.
Unless there is a way to taper the neck from nut to heal???

I like that he leaves the neck joint and volute to hand carving........ at least some of it is "hand made" if you know what i mean
