Love the inlays!

Still haven't tried cutting a neck but my bass player has some stock glued up to try so it won't be long...

Thanks for sharing!

Mike by cutting into strips and turning 90 degrees and glueing then re planing this gets the grain of the wood the best way to take the strain from the strings and stop the neck bending excessively (you probably know this any way)

Looks awesome what program did you use to model them? I've been trying to model a neck in rhino and just can't get it right. I added a couple of files of necks I've done.

Nice work. Are the thin fret slots cnc machined as well? If so where do you get your end mills for that?
Thanks,
Scott
