It's hard to find the right wood here in Portugal. Thanks to a local furniture maker we got some leftovers...(well at a certain price that is). 2 pieces of Faia (beech) and some pieces of Mogno (Mahogany) I guess we can get 10 guitar-necks out of it.
It's been a very hot day, the day of hunting for some "guitar-neck material".
36 degrees Celsius during that sunny day, so we've waited until the middle of the night to unload. The 4 boxes are getting to their completion and soon it will be time to make one 6-string, two 4-string and one 3-string neck. As always they will be completed with our own "Fado-style" tuners, although it will be a first time we'll make a 6-string head.
The design's aren't clear yet, it all depends on what's on the recycling shelves...
And.... we had that feeling somebody was watching us....
