It’s neck time.
For this neck I used some of my reclaimed staircase Brazillian Mahogany. Exceptionally stiff and close grained, it’s perfect for a strong, stable neck. And the deep rich colour really compliments this set of “The Tree”.
I carve my necks with an Auriou rasp, from a small forge in France. Because the rasps are forged by hand, the teeth are more random than a machine cut rasp. This allows a more even result on the carve.
This set of “The Tree” is just dying to come alive with a coat of lacquer. Check back next week to see the results…
Thanks for following the progress of this special guitar.
