Hi Everyone, Im working on putting together a couple 5 ply strat style necks (rock Maple with Wenge stripes) and I wanted to sense check my thinking on some knowledgeable folk! Basically I have divided the neck into three sections - inner wing (away from the body) Outer wing (towards the body) and core and done some measurements from a set of 1950's strat plans. The plan is to laminate the 5 strips together, plane smooth then trace my centerline - the two strips will continue through the headstock and give a cool sort of off asymmetrical look to the headstock that I quite like. There will be a Rosewood fretboard for this one. The question is - will measuring from the outside (outer wing) give me accurate measurements for my centreline? Has anyone built similar style necks and have any advice? Will building in 5 pieces compromise the integrity of my neck? Thanks for any advice.
