New neck for the Blunderbird. Been wanting a maple neck for this build for awhile now. Found this no name strat neck for $40 in a local shop.
Still need to do a little fretwork and will probably cut a new nut for it, but it plays surprisingly well as is.

NICE.
You only like it because it looks like a Tele, Tony. :hihi:
What's the neck pup in there, blunder? Proper Firebird pups are some of my favourite pickups ever.

Neck pickup is a Roadhouse Kingston, a Supro style single coil. Really great pickup. I was planning on doing a proper Firebird pickup but got such a good deal on this set, I couldn't pass them up. I'll eventually get a Firebird for it though. I can put this set in my other tele.

I haven't shared on here since a long time...
Here's some pic of a custom Stone Skull I'm slowly building.

The trick to cut something straight, whatever the tool used, is to clamp (C shaped Vise-Grip or other) a straight edge the long of the line you want to cut. I used a dremmel with mini cutting disks. One side at a time. Then, I adjusted both sides with a file. In case you want to try yourself have in mind the lower screw holes have to be drilled deeper prior to cut then re-tap.

To give credit, John Lyons was the first one I personally saw doing something like that :party:
