What happens when you spend all day cutting 1/8" thick wood on a CNC laser cutter? Apparently, C. B. Gitty's Jason Munoz gets inspired to recycle the wood scraps into cigar box guitar necks!
Check out this wild neck Munoz created using nothing but 1/8" wood scraps from the C. B. Gitty laser cutter! It took a lot of gluing and clamping, but the end result was pure art.
A good use of scraps.
A neck made of multiple pieces(laminated neck) will be stronger than a solid wood neck. They can be heavier due to the added glue and some argue whether the glue and grain orientation( side to side or nut to heel) will harm tone of the instrument.
Question for Ben, I often wonder when his team creates guitars "off record" per se, do they ever get sold, kept for a personal collection, or what happens to it.
I did a fret board the same way. I cut each fret out of red oak and poplar alternating the pieces. I stained the red oak but left the poplar natural and then applied three coats of poly. Looks great
