Looks great Ben I bet the brass is leftover machine side plates .... 

You know it my friend!

waste not , want not!

Hope all's well with you and yours!

Yes we are all well the last opp I had on my bad nerve damage has helped , can get my arm above my my shoulder height with not much pain , I’m still building machines for local artist here in OZ just not bothered to put them up any site , had my Lucky 7 & El Gordo , ripped off by some Chinese asshat you know how it goes my dear friend. Being enjoying watching you creat your great CBG Ben say hi to your cheeks n kissers maybe we can start to message each other I have a bit more time up my sleeves .. 

Regards Jeff . 

That’s some nice wood on those necks!

Hibdon Hardwood sells irregular neck blanks cheap, you can usually get 2 CBG necks from one blank

Spanish cedar works easy and finishes nicely

Love Cedar. Great looking Gits. Love the volute on the back of the necks.

Thanx Paul,
Shaping and constructing the neck is my favourite parts of building these thingsn
5 string, open G ala Keith Richards is next in the bench
