Finishing up the headstock

So, I had another session with the headstock. More headstock pictures?? Yes! Sorry.. It just wasn’t finished yet.

First, I did some hand sanding on the contours / sides to straighten things out, remove burn marks et cetera:

The top surface of the Maple veneer still showed some marks from the band saw from when it was bookmatched. So I asked Sir ‘Skil’ Sand-a-lot to help me out on this:

And this is how it came out in the end.. I really like the flame!

And the shape!

Next, I’ll file out the truss rod access cavity with a coarse round file. If the truss rod fits in, I can glue in the truss rod and carbon rods with epoxy. See you next time!
