Pete Lucchini: Suggestion: next time use a radius sanding block of the same radius as the finger board to clamp the top of the finger board.
Using a flat clamp on a radius fretted board could cause the fret wires to pop out or flatten.

Pistol Walker: 4:19 rosewood board is sitting above the body, Big problems from here on out.

Arturo Aldana: How much cost this DIY kit??

Joe “Natures Lawn” M: Is there a way to measure or use a flat surface to get the neck in tolerance that you know of? Almost ready to glue mine and would certainly appreciate any suggestions. And the mention that TiteBond 3 will "creep" and only use the original one? What is that all about. I have 3 and can't find anything negative about it. Thanks

Eduard van Kleef: I feel that you are taking some risk glueing in the neck without any check. The pre-drilled holes imply that there is very limited scope for fixing things through a re-positioning of the bridge later on. Both the neck position and the neck angle could be off...

you mothers dads ants dog: glue????

lucomannaro1: Hey Fred I was just wondering (maybe I'll have to see the other videos to know this I don't know) buuut..why is there a cut-out part on the neck? The one you're glueing at 1:51 ?

HalfStepTheory: How do you know how far in to set the neck? Is it just flush with edge of the pickup hole?

Sergio Derewinsky: nice firewood:-)

ktulhu2011: Plastic clamps are Like a 2 inch di*k. Sure you va f*ck a girl with it, but it just won't do the job...

semiLivedj: Maybe put glue on both surfaces and push it in as to drop it in.

Tyler: For anyone watching don't use titebond 2 or 3 it's creeps with time. Titebond original dries hard and doesn't creep like 2. Some say use hide glue but honestly titebond cured harder than the wood in my own testing. I did want to try fish glue though.

John Luke Fabay: Hey Fred, just wanted to ask if the the guitar neck has a truss rod?

kokopiko: I`m not so sure about any glue would work. My luther says you need animal skin or bone glue

Rama Adhiguna: y no bolt on?

BC Bell: Looks good! You may want to put some lemon oil on the fretboard also.

Bryan Smith: Thanks for sharing your build

Rick Rife: You might as well made this kit out of scrap lumber. That is the nastiest looking guitar I have seen outside of a pawn shop. You never used wood filler to get the grain pockets out nor did you finish sand it.You only rough sanded it. When done by hand you should have at least done 320 or better yet 400. Your next project try using a electric sander and don't rush the finsh job. This guitar is worth about $50.00 top end.
