Step 7: Neck, 1.02 carving the back.

Picture of Neck, 1.02 carving the back.
Did I mention the neck was going to be a long drawn out process? At this point I will demonstrate how I carved the back of the neck. Using rasps, files, spoke shaves and sand paper work the neck to the shape you like. I am shooting for a cross between a Fender and Gibson profile, a flattened "C" shape in cross section.
