Did you create elliptical curves or partial arcs? Are you planning on carving the guitar neck by hand or CNC carving it? I like the idea of matching the profile to a guitar you enjoy playing. My wife plays, but is very picky about the width and depth of the neck of her guitars. It seems the only one she really thinks “fits” her is a $2500 Taylor 12 string.

After a long struggle with Fibromyalgia she wasn’t able to play for several years and sold both her beloved Taylor 555 and a 6 string Tacoma. Recently she has the bug to start playing again and she has tried lots of guitars and not found one that matches the feel (or tone) of her old ones.

A few weeks ago we went to a small local show for luthiers. There were some gorgeous guitars. Given me the bug to try and make one. A (not so) local jr college has a guitar making class I’d love to take (Red Rocks - very good woodworking program). I know a master luthier (classically trained European apprenticeship), who would be a great source for instruction and advice, even though he mostly builds or works on concert violins and similar instruments, but he is over an hour away.
