Look thru threads on the forum for Alex Navarro a guitar builder. Should get the info from someone with his experience . I''ve done carvings on a couple of my sons guitars with v carve and v carve 3-D I'vs been wanting to try a solid body build for a long time , but told my son until I have all the info and sure of my setup to do my own neck that I am just going to.keep taking notes. I know there's a guy on the net I came across that's using mesh cam for his necks .looking forward to following this thread . Pops

I Have been following the u tube videos from Laguna tools where a complete body is cut with good explanation of the process.
I am in the process of building a guitar cut on cnc. On a previous thread I posted my first neck but have improved since. The cnc is so useful for cutting radius on the fret boards and sanding jigs.
If all else fails read the instructions

This video is 30 minutes long and gives you tips on how to prepare the relief of the body and neck of his guitar to be used optimally in the following Cut3D and VCarve or for CUT2D.

Not present the CUT2D, but you have this software will notice that the features are the same, except for the layers.

I hope you enjoy.
