This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?

I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.

A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.

Thanks Paul. I might just do that.

I'd of gotten done sooner. A friend turned me on to a Japanese Anime. Didn't realize it was a full length movie. Incase someone is interested "Bakemono no Ko". 

So here's where it's at so far. Still need to glue up the rest of the box itself. The long piece behind everything is the back access plate. 

This is the front of the guitar. Along with the 'pick guard'. It's easy to tell this will be a 24.75 scale and not a 25.75. That missing inch really shows up between those pickups. 

That bit of practicing I did on cutting straight lines with a scroll saw really paid off. Not perfectly straight. But at 20 feet and me jumping around no one will ever notice. : )

And here's the final glue up. Be a lot of sanding and shaping. Going to round up the edges. Lesson learned from my Cosmic Glider. Sharp edges are no fun. : ) 

Those home made clamps work great. Allows me to clamp both the sides and what's inside the guitar supporting the top, pickguard and bridge at the same time. 

And a change of plans. going to use the Probora pickups. Their black. So this will have a black neck. Black pickups. Black knobs and a black bridge. No, the box isn't going to be black. Or bright pink. : )
