Just want to introduce myself and alert everyone that I have an ulterior motive in being here! LOL My name is Brian and I live in Kingston, TN near Knoxville. I have built many things around my house like a deck, greenhouse, dog house etc. I also have built/assembled several guitars from parts. I want to go a little deeper into guitar construction which leads to my current project and reason for being here.

Currenting I am building a neck thru guitar. The neck was premanufactured by Carvin as I am not ready for that step yet. So, I have the neck made of maple, and I have the 'wings' of basswood that need to be attached to the neck. I need to plane the wings to the same thickness as the neck. Then I need to prepare the edges (plane/join?) of the wings to be glued to the neck. Once that has cured and I have routed for pickups, controls, bridge etc, I will need a bandsaw to cut out the final shape.

So that at least is one of the reasons I'm here, to find someone in my area with said tools willing to help out.

Thanks!

Sounds like a nice project! I've been wanting to try a neck-thru, but I have to finish my first two guitars (bolt-ons) first. Unfortunately, I'm not even close to your area, but I really want to see how your project progresses. I just joined here as well, and I'm eager for any tips or stories on guitar-building. Good luck!

Can't help with the tools since I'm in Texas, but I have built some guitars (Bass). If I can help with any advice let me know. I have used carvin bolt on necks with good luck. Their electronics have worked for me also.

Good luck
