This is from a couple weeks ago. Here I'm clamping the headstock overlay on Mousa 003 neck build. I learned from my days at Santa Cruz Guitars to pre-bind the overlay before you glue it to the neck. Then you can use the headplate overlay as a routing template to shape the peghead. Pretty slick.
Gluing up the peghead ears on last week's Mousa 003 neck build. I like to do full ears as opposed to just adding corners. The difference is that you can't see the ear joint from the side on full ears where just gluing the extra corners looks sloppy and lazy. The extra effort is a pain but totally worth it.
Below is video of the neck blank prep from last week's#otb_vlog 050:
Chubbuck neck build :: fingerboard glue-up
I use a single-action truss rod on my acoustics and push relief into the neck when I glue up the fingerboards. This way I'm able to extend the range from relief to straight to back bow upon tightening the rod. I also use hot hide glue for this glue-up.
