Neck: old and new

Russell and I discussed the advantages and disadvantages of replacing the neck, which was original. An original neck is usually something worth preserving, but it had some cracks, gouges in the side, and had been grafted into a new block rather unartfully. We finally decided that it would be healthier with a new neck, and that this was the time to do it. He carved the new neck himself (I’ll post pictures of that soon). The graft of the original scroll onto the new neck is amazing; it’s virtually impossible to spot.

And the new neck:
