    I think I may be dead now… the shock of January’s “DIY Fretpress” actually having been demoted ;o)

    That’s a long way to go for a drink, I’d expect manual relief too, at the very least.

    Great reading your blog mate. Your work is admirable.

    I’m currently working on a 59LP Replica:

    But i’m totally confused about some issues with the final finish and burst painting. Is there some way you can be contacted so I can pick your brains about colour suppliers to have something compatible with the Rustins stuff I intend to buy following your advice.

    I don’t really know where else to turn.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can be.

    Hi there!

    I enjoy very much all the info on this site.
    I would ask some questions about the “pickup plane” I saw on the LesPaul body.
    I have no idea where to post a question except leaving an answer to an existing topic as I am doing now.
    So, sorry if I should not post here.

    Can someone tell me where and how to post my question?

    Hi Ant!

    Love your work, i’ve been browsing your blogs for months in preparation for my third build but i’ve encountered a problem.

    My previous builds were bolt ons and were made from templates i made from existing guitars, but now i’m making a setneck from my own custom templates, i’m a bit stuck on one aspect, if i can get around this then i can do the rest!

    On simmo’s bolt on neck, you mentioned about radiusing the corners of the heel to match the radius left by the router bit in the neck pocket, this is my problem but you don’t mention how to do this accurately.

    My thoughts led me to believe that getting a drill bit the same size as the router bit, placing it on the corner of the neck template, drawing around it and then sanding would be the solution, but i’m not confident i can get a good result this way, could you tell me how you did simmo’s please?

    Thanks for any info you can give me.

  11. Ant Says:

    Hi Larry,

    Thanks for the kind works, good to know someone is still checking the site, despite my infrequent updates!

    I find the best way to match the radius of corners of the neck to the corners of the mortice is to route the neck (using what ever router cutter is available) and then carefully shape the corners of the neck to match. I do it pretty much as you describe - I mark the radius onto the corners of the neck , then sand it to the line on a disc sander.

    Bear in mind that a perfect match isn’t necessary, and the only reason to worry about the fit is cosmetics. Provided that the sides and bottom of the joint are well mated, the rest is just for show, and is usually concealled under pickguard, or within the neck pickup cavity.

  21. how do i get more followers on twitter Says:

    Thanks for the suggestions you have contributed here. Another thing I would like to convey is that pc memory demands generally go up along with other advances in the technological innovation. For instance, if new generations of cpus are brought to the market, there’s usually a related increase in the scale demands of both the pc memory and also hard drive space. This is because software program operated through these cpus will inevitably rise in power to use the new engineering.
