Here is how the headstock binding turned out...
Picture of the neck mostly carved, still need to detail sand and clean it up a little here and there.
If you have been following this build you will notice the spalted maple cap is missing, it popped right off when I was carving the heel. I don't know if I am going to leave the black or put something over it. I will see what it looks like when I match it with the body
Three strings with a truss-rod... Yes, I think it's overkill as well. But I had to try.
I love this Bacote fingerboard. (Still need to trim the binding)
