Well, fortunately, Warmoth offers a prep, and one that's well worth it.

I'm working on the lastest version of the UUSS. Here it is so far.

Thanks anyways... but I thought I had the job and didn't... so it's gonna be a while... I'm still probably gonna do a build once I get a job, but I think I have a lead on some mahogany that I can get for free (a large amount too, thick and long) so I'll probably shape it out of that...

Anybody know how much wood I'm gonna need for this build? How thick should I buy my wood? 4 inches? Is that too thick or not thick enough? I have no idea...

Okay so... I'm gonna build my guitar mostly from scratch (yeah I'm gonna buy tuners and electronics, but the neck and the body are all me...). The problem is that I have no idea where to start... I wanna do a Neck-Thru design with a mahogany body for a rich, warm, sustaining tone... I actually don't know what kind of trem I'm gonna use... The pickups are gonna be in a HSS design and I think I'm gonna use a telecaster bridge pickup for the middle part... I'm still going with the on/offs and there wont be coil splitters, I've decided that I just don't need them... I also don't know where to find designs and templates for the neck (as in fret placement etc.)...

Ah. Well, let me put it to you this way . . . unless you were doing some sort of fancy jazzbox, even 2" is way thick. 1.5" to 1.75" will be fine.

Okay cool... SO all I really need is some mahogany boards... the only thing is, I don't know how to shape the neck other than a lot of sanding.. I will probably need something thicker for the neck though...

Okay, if you've never built a neck before, or are unsure of how to shape it (and, believe me, you do NOT want to sand it into shape), then I would strongly suggest you order the neck from Warmoth.

I'm making a neck through... I thought about a lathe but it'd be too hard... I think it'd be easy with the right tool...

I think Carvin is becoming the "42" of the guitar forum.

Warmoth doesn't sell a Through-Neck... Besides, I wanna make mine... It's half the fun...plus my cousin's best friend works at a lumber yard, so wood comes at cost or (if he can pull it off) some scrap pieces (which would work because I don't need the full planks) would be free... He says they have a lot of mahogany and rosewood... (I'm thinking rosewood neck with Mahogany wings...) but I will buy the fingerboard, I don't wanna have to calculate the radius on that...


-edit-

To Chesh, everywhere I know says to use a belt sander to shape the neck... I'm going to do this...

ummm, yes they do, I looked into making one, but strewmac has one too, it is just more expensive with no real advantage. http://www.carvin.com/products/singl...=NT6&CID=GTR/K

May I suggest that you not play with rosewood? It is quite toxic.

I know that Carvin does... Warmoth, as far as i can figure out, only offers bolt on necks... I've looked through their site a good bit... besides, it's a lot cheaper than buying a neck... If Stewmac has one for a good price (I honestly haven't looked) I might buy one, but 200 is too much, plus there is the advantage of not having to calculate the neck angle...


*Edit*

Oh yeah, I did look at stewmac I don't want a maple neck, the wood is just too brightly toned... and I will probably wear gloves and a mask anyways... (I always wear gloves when I'm working with power tools and my allergies would kill me if I breathed that much sawdust... i'm not too worried about it...)
