    Default Carving my VHI Neck

    I rough cut the neck to within 1/8" of my lines and then use a template I made and my router to trim off and get it perfect. I already cut the truss rod channel for a 2-way adjustable rod with heal adjustment. I have to drill it at the heal still, but you can see how it looks at this point.


    Look at the figuring on this Maple!

    I think for the most part it is the same, but there are some slight differences. I blueprinted mine directly from the pic of the original and made the adjustments for the perspective of the photo. Here's a CBS and the Original and you can see they are very much alike, but I think the bottom curve is slightly different. I think the headstock might be slightly smaller too because if you look at the line I drew from the inside curve right before the ball on both they align with the tuners differently. I drew my line parrallel with the 12th fret dots to get the angle correct.
