Default More neck

Here are some pictures of the top plate for the headstock. This is Brazilian and will be my pillow top type. Because of the height of the pillow top I inlay the truss rod cover into it for string clearance:



In this case we're keeping the truss rod cover Brazilian as well and more or less blending it in. This requires a very tight fit or it just won't look right IMHO. So that's what I did:



You'll notice I have a BRW floor inside the truss rod cut out. I think it looks more finished that way (even though no one normally will see it):



Thanks for viewing!
