Part 4,

It's always nice to have a little help from your friends, or in this case, your Dad.  Basically, I had a very small place to route out on the guitar body, and it had to be accurate.  I knew it was going to take ten times longer to set up the equipment than it would be to actually make the cut.  So I was thankful to have an extra set of hands (my Dad) to help me with this.

Here's where I was at last time:

I needed to route out the neck pocket, and finish shaping the body.

After a bit of work, this is how it turned out.

Not bad right?

Yeah, I can definately live this that.  But then, I needed to check the fit of the neck pocket.

Ok, things are looking up.  I did have to do a little work on the neck pocket to get a perfect fit, but I did that just fine.  I think it needs a little more sanding, but after that, it's off to get stained and finished.  Stay tuned for that blog post.  I don't know how long it will take, but I am going to send it out to someone who actually has a spray booth.  I want someone who can actually make it look professional, as I am terrible with guitar finishing.
