Wow, this thread is glorious!

My Viper pickguard had failed, so I made one in steel.

Do you always do a volute at the head ? It seems to be the way if you're doing an angled head with the scarf joint.

Thanks guys, :hug:

The answer is no?

The neck on this bass is from Carvin [like the other], if I had made the neck this project would have taken even longer as work and life and band gets in the way of getting these things done :lol:

For the necks that I have built.. have done one voluted.. and I NEVER scarf in heads.. I perfer the RIC way of a lower break angle or a straight fender type..

Ah I see. I have a 3 piece neck I made from maple and walnut that I have been working up the nerve to carve one of these days and I was just kind of curious. I like the way they feel

It's easy enough to make another if I drag out the table saw and the planer.. I should probably just give it a go.

I think you should make it how you feel you would like it best and just take your time so it comes out right :thumb:
I have nothing against volutes, also I don't see that many necks snap in the place they usually are :idk: but if you are laminating you should have a pretty strong neck anyway.
