Default Neck Joint 1

Larry routs and carves the mortise and tenon for the neck joint.

Here are the necks for the two guitars Larry is currently building. Mine is the maple neck.


The heel prior to any carving.


A look at Larry's standard five-piece mahogany neck with the uncarved face of the heel.


With the bolt holes drilled through the tail block, the mortise is routed. The router is placed atop the jig shown and a mortise is born.






The neck is clamped to the body, and the position of the tenon is marked on the heel.




The tenon is now carved into the heel.

Like the castle in its corner
In a medieval game
I foresee terrible trouble
And I stay here just the same
