    Not trying to be a dick, but before you do a neck you should probably get really good at making bodies that are at least passable for existing necks... That looks really rough, and if that's where you're at on bodies you're definitely not ready for necks. Again, not trying to be a dick, but baby steps. Guitar building is very hard. If you ever want to learn and can make it out to Austin I'd be glad to give some lessons, for appropriate compensation of course.

    What exactly do you need to do with the neck?

    Also, agreed with dr. Elysian up there^
    The neck I made in high school has seen many revisions before I was happy with it

    Do you have to make a neck? What about using a donor neck instead of building one - that way you have something accurate and straight to build your body to. I'm building a body at the moment and learning so much, but even now I feel a long way off making my own neck.

    I think there's something quite endearing about it.
