      Yeah... either way should work.

      The big differences are that scarf joint method allows you to use a shorter piece for the neck, and it also allows you to splice in a different kinda wood for the headstock, which looks cool often times. Some argue these are less prone to warping/cupping but there's little evidence of that.

      With the sold slab/blank, you can have consistent lines all the way up the neck+headstock and you can sculpt one of those sexy volutes. The disadvantages is that it's possibly less stable *again, no evidence of that really*, and you have to use a 2" or thicker blank to cut it out of, and you have to have a significantly longer plank of wood to do it.

      Either way, I'll see what works best for what I've got and I'll let you know. These first few, I'm ironing out the specifics of which method I want to use. :yesway:

      That's what I'll be checking. If it can't I'll scarf joint it, and if I can, then I'll do it the other way. As a reference, the interceptor isn't scarf jointed but I know 99% of Ibanezs are. Stability wise, they're both about the same.

      Yeah, that's how you do a scarf joint. I'm 50/50 on if that's how I'm doing yours, just because I'm using a ~2" thick blank which can probably be have the headstock cut out as a slab.

      Both :wub:

      The guy I know with a jointer doesn't actually have a jointer. :( BUT... he's an expert craftsman and he'll be able to plane it all square by hand; perfectly square. :yesway:

      I'm hoping to get the rest of the $$$ for the Crate within the next week or so, and if I do, then I can order my fretting gear. :D

      Thank glorious Satan for the the fact you have taste. I never understood why they made those movies the way they did, until somebody pointed out that Joel Schumacer's inspiration was the Batman TV show. :squint:

      You know, THAT television show.
