Thank you. I learned a lot about Aspire throughout the process.

Beautiful work Darryl! How long is that neck end to end? Did you do the inlay on the Stinger as well?

Thanks for sharing!

Mike

Sorry for delay in responding. The neck is 25.5" long with 22 frets. The inlay was done using V Carve engraving. I use a mixture of epoxy and Iridescent white oil based paint to do the inlay. A very small amount of paint to epoxy gives it a pearl inlay appearance.

Darryl,

Very nice. I've built a few guitars - classical - but all by hand. I have been looking/searching for quite a while for a CNC router to make some electric guitars. My search lead me to the conclusion that the Stinger 1 was the best option for me. So, hopefully in the near future I'll have one. Just curious if your Stinger is default or did you opt to update to spindle? Again, nice work!
