I’m making my second guitar for a friend. It’s going to be a Gibson Explorer and we decided to make it a set through neck for more stability (he worries about it not being strong enough with it just glued on or with set screws despite me saying otherwise). It’s going to be a 5stripe maple/walnut (5/8” thick pieces) center with the sepele wings glue on afterwards. But so my question is, when I cut the side view out for the neck and body on the center piece, should I cut it out with the straight edge of the wood on the neck or bottom of the body? Or should I make a template and run the whole thing on a shaper?
