Proto Neck for Archtop 2
2nd Mule neck is from Epi 6 string, cut down peg head, will pull
board and go with 22 fret
This is a standard peg head, not a drop down like #1
Will pull truss to free it up from the cavity, most of these
work poorly until I fit them
Just a heel from pine will do
You can see where its sectioned, the top tuners will be below
Again, it is a prototype, others will be made right
from the start.
Picking a board
After mounting the heel, I am fairing it in with #10 CA and
That is Cyanide gas from a fast catalyzation, do not breathe
I use wax paper to press down the dust before I add
accelerant, this doesn't stick.
Soaked the heel with it as well, rough shaping done
White lacquer for primer, to look for highs and lows while I
I will shape it all up and drill out tuners, prep for board.
More when time permits!
