Neck work

Have got the back of the neck shaped to my liking now. Started with a 45° router bit, chosen purely due to it being the biggest bit that I could do an edge with. I was planning on using a round over bit, but the ones I had didn't have a bit enough radius. The angle bit turned out to look quite nice, so I'm glad I used it in the end.

The joins of the head/neck and neck/body have been done by hand with a file and sand paper. They're starting to look quite nice. Any time your guitar starts to look like a spaceship from a sci-fi movie, that's a good thing.

I've also lengthened the truss rod slot a bit, and drilled through the adjustment hole.
