Building My 1st Geetar.
I have decided to build a Jem style guitar. I have a few questions. I've looked at Project Guitar.com a lot, but I need some help with the neck part of it. I want to use Stew Mac for a neck, as I will buy a Finger Board with the nut and frets cut out already. I have a great wood worker which I'm very close to, so he is going to help me, but...
I'll shape the neck a "blank", cut out the truss rod with a router, but that "blank" looks too small. Please tell me that it is bigger then in the stock photo?
And, for the "Hod Rod 2-way" truss rod, wouldn't the routing be easier, as its straight down the neck and doesn't get deeper as it gets down the neck?
I want a square neck pocket, (it will be sanded down like the old Jems), does anyone have the neck pocket measurements for an old Jem?
And finally, what color should it be? I was thinkin' a DY or LNG.
