Copy an electric neck that you like. Ensure, however, that the depth will work with your chosen truss rod (i.e. enough wood surrounding the truss rod). If the profile is small enough, you might consider reinforcing the neck to make it stiffer. Some narrow/thin mahogany necks on some instruments are like whammy bars: they move all over the place, making accurate intonation wishful thinking.

Wow looking great Mirwa.
I had my first son, and been kinda busy lately. Had to stop working on the guitar for a while, but I'm finally back

Got the chance of gluing the kerfing and blocks to the sides, and closed the box. I also carved the neck to the profile I liked, and installed the truss rod.

Can't wait to routing the binding channels, and glue the bindings and purflings in place.
I will be using a maple binding with some b/w strips and abalone purflings.

I'm really pleased with the way this is turning out. Closing the box was tricky, since braces go through the sides, and wanted to get a tight fit through the kerfing.

Looking forward to posting some pictures of the process as soon as I get back home.

Cheers,
Fran
