I keep neglecting greenie and it makes me feel so guilty, haha

Never quite bonded with the custom custom I have running; too much treble and not enough punch, and with a maple neck and alter body, MORE treble is defiantly not what this guitar needed hahah!

Glad I helped ya kick yourself Into this project though because she looks killer!

Just a quick update reguarding the unfinished neck I will be using for this build.

I did take a close look at possibly modding its HS into a beaked one...but after looking at many pictures and taking some measurements, it quickly became apparent....sixstring was correct, there just wasn't enough wood there to make an attempt. Would have needed just over a 1/4 inch more wood on the top right side, before committing. Oh well, this is OK with me, since I originally liked what I saw at time of order.

OK, so here it is, with the finish I put on it. This step really made me a little uneasy, not a whole lot of experience with this sort of process. I decided to use Tru-Oil (and thats it) for the final finish. Took a few man hours, involving filling the pores of this Mahogany neck, some sanding (most all sanding was done at the pore filling stage) IMHO the most important part....the effort put in sanding down until you start to see the wood grain, will determine how well it will turn out! Take your time with this!

I reached the point of satisfaction after 4 coats of Tru-Oil, this neck is super smooth like glass, yet maintaining a satin type
feel to it....very sweet! You can just go nuts with this stuff (applying coat after coat), but thats the beauty of Tru-Oil...you can stop when you have reached your desired look and feel.

Following pictures are after the pore fill and sanding down to wood grain using 220 gritt

But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.
