Fretboard Positioned


After being certain that the neck blank is perfectly flat, the fretboard is positioned, located with two small wooden dowels, and glued in place.
The peghead overlay, in this case of Gaboon ebony, is then glued to the peghead face. Spanning the running stock of the neck and the peghead as it does, this creates a headstock of greater strength than a one-piece neck.
The truss rod is the tightened slightly, back-bowing the neck a bit. The fret board is then planed perfectly flat and the appropriate radius on our CNC router.
