I'm new here and was suggested by the gear page to ask around for help on a project. I'm looking for someone who can build me a neck thru guitar blank with the body already cut out, is there anyone on the forum that does this type of work?
Greetings, but hey - who am I to say that - 1st post for me as well :glasses10: !
I don't know of anyone who will do a body on a neck-through blank without finishing the whole guitar for you, but I've got half decent woodworking skills/tools, and have also thought of making a neck-thru at times as well. I know that Carvin offers a reasonably-priced blank ($209), and have considered ordering one to give it a whirl:
I am in the opposite situation of the OP. That is, I would like the neck through neck portion, and not the body blank. Did either of these posters (or anyone else) find help? I have approached Warmoth (not knowing they didn't do this) and do not know where else to turn.
Stewmac sells the neckthrough portion that you are probably looking for.
There's a link, I also think I mentioned this somewhere else on the forum, but I don't remember.
At Mansfield Guitars I do all types of custom work including custom builds. I have never done just a body and neck but I'd be willing to help you out. Drop me an email if you want at email@example.com and let me know the details of what your lookig for.
Presuming these posts were directed at me, and not Sam - then thanks, nigel and mansfield.
Mark, since posting I have been in contact with all manner of folk, including Warmoth and Stew-mac. The blanks which Stew-mac do are in a 'restricted' type of timber, and therefore they will not send it outside of the United States.
As I am not in the US, this does not help me much!
I build neck though guitar necks, and have been selling them on ebay for about 2 years. I just started a new web site. If you are interested, check out my site at: man-cave-guitar.com or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
