Part way through first build.
Following F. Charle 807 plans.
Neck (plus headstock and heel) = Walnut / Fingerboard = Ebony
Worried it's HEAVY...
Played a 'home-made' guitar once before that had terrible 'neck droop' due to the neck being way heavier than the body, felt like throwing it out of the bloody window! Unplayable..
What kind of weight should I be aiming for?
Should I be putting aluminium 'stiffening' strips down the length of the neck? How many? Should they have holes along them to reduce weight?
Please, I need help!
