Ok guys, here is the real body Jaden cut today.

In my opinion the cut of Korina looks much nicer than the test runs ( I didn't like the 'horns' near the bridge and the slightly Grey coloration on the test )

Jaden was kind enough to get a new batch of Korina in, here goes....

Not sure about the little cut of wood that doesn't quite level up on this pic above on the bottom right side but I'm sure it won't be a problem for Jaden.

And finally.....look at the grain on the wood ;) I think it would be fair to say I'm starting to get excited

Image

Should hopefully have pictures of the neck in the next few days.

For those of you wondering what a Jaden fireman with a humbucker setup would look like.....

Another update guys. Jaden has been hard at work :D

Here is the neck

From Jaden

I cut the rough shape and then hand sculpt the neck for the final surface with a cabinet scraper and sandpaper etc..


Looks stunning 8)

Image

Image

Finally you can see the test cut on the right and the real/rough cut on the left

Image

I have to sand and shape the rest, cut the pickguard, test fit the hardware and send it for clearcoating, then its done

:)

That one looks badly out of proportion. Jaden's is in a totally different league!
