Default Neck Block

Mark has a continuous cutaway that runs flush/tangent from the fretboard. In order to achieve this, Mark needs to understand the fretboard taper and width at the 14th fret where it meets the body. You can see the 2.310” width called out at this point. You can see the twisting,compound surface on the Honduran Mahogany neck block that the Brazilian Rosewood cutaway will later be glued to.

In the second photo you can see the Honduran Mahogany neck block being glued to to the non-cutaway Brazilian Rosewood rim.

A bunch of nice archtops, flattops, a gypsy & nylon strings…
