This one I started 3 months ago. The wood was advertised Tiger Stripe, bubbly maple. I guess the guy really didn't know what to call it? The wood was 25" so I needed to gain another 6". I made a head that has a 3" long tang on it that fits very snuggly in a slot I milled in the neck. I then plated it similar to an electric guitar neck to a body. It works great and the open wood peg head stays in tune. Very happy with the results. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

ah.....my two neighbors Steve and Robert... Smile Thank you Joe, C.E., Steve and Robert for your kind words. There were times during the build I was not sure I was heading where I wanted to go, but it all worked out and I could not be happier. Again, thanks.
