UPDATE #4: ok guitar nerds here is the latest update on my parts guitar build. My beautiful roasted 4A flame maple neck form @musikraftusa arrived today and it looks and feels amazing. I can't wait until I have the body to attach it. For those curious I went with a standard 22 fret Fender scale length neck (25.5"), a fretboard radius of 12 (because I do a lot of bending), and jumbo frets for the same reason. I also went with a 57 soft v profile for the neck shape as that feels comfortable in my small hands. I also had them install a tusq nut. And for those curious I will be installing Schaller locking tuners as they are what I have on all my live guitars. And as always, I will try and answer any questions in the comments section. #raulsguitarproject #ihavetoomanyguitarsalready #ihaveproblems

UPDATE #6: Dear god, what have I gotten myself into? What am I missing? Where do I begin? I know people have been waiting to see the finished product but don't be surprised if it's a picture of splinters in my garbage can😂😂. Oh well, anything I screw up can be replaced. Fingers crossed.....#raulsguitarproject #ihavetoomanyguitarsalready

UPDATE #7: so it's been a while since I've made an update and I have had a few people asking me about it so here we go. 1) sometimes tours and life get in the way and so I haven't had much time to put into the guitar. 2) as this is my first parts guitar project I figured I would make mistakes, and unfortunately it was a doozy. When I had the body ordered I had it routed for the wrong bridge. So I made it worse when I drilled new posts for my bridge. I fixed it myself but am now having trouble dropping in the bridge and lining it up. Because playability and intonation are so important I decided to cry uncle and take it to my local tech extraordinaire. I do things quickly and get frustrated easily which is not a good combination. This project has helped me slow down and work through my frustrations. Remember people, it's ok to ask for help. Hopefully more updates to come soon, I just need to get the body back. 😹. #raulsguitarproject #downbutnotout
