Oooh, I’ve been lax in posting.  But progress is being made.  I have spent quite some time working the neck joint and getting the neck angle right and fine tuning the fit between the neck and body.  I also installed the neck bolt inserts and aligned/enlarged the truss rod access hole.  I think I’m close to the end result.


Also, I glued the fretboard on and began trimming the joint between the neck and the fretboard.  Next step is to get the neck a bit thinner.


Spent a lot of time bringing down the surface to a baby butt smooth state.  I still have some discernable gaps between body and binding that I need to devise a fill for before (or after?) I put down the first lacquer coats.
