Probably about 2 days work left on it, maybe more. Gotta fret, glue on the fretboard, do the wiring fit the tailpiece, string retainer plate, pup, and bridge, then screw it together.This is probably the best quality one I have built. Zoom in on the headstock and you can see the birch ply/mahogany/birch ply neck I made.

I like it. Nice work on the neck. Please share a photo of the other side when you're done.

The back of the box is just plain, but here's the back of the neck...

Late report: It came out looking great, but I consider it a fail, it's nowhere as stiff as I'd like it to be.

That's what I wanted to see...back of the neck. Love the look.

I'm also building the reverse, a ply center and mahogany edges...

Hi, nice looking neat build. I like the neck feature. Maybe the fretted hardwood fingerboard will add some extra stiffness, you mentioned that it still has to be fitted to the neck.
Cheers Taff
