Sal's Flamenco ~ Neck

Spanish Cedar neck assembly
Clamps removed from neck assembly.

Excess neck is being sawed flush to the heel block.

A bit of dressing on the side of heel block with bench plane.

The height of the heel block is brought to correct dimension.

The centre line determined; profile of fingerboard is also drawn unto the neck (61mm at the 12th fret, tapering to 50mm at the nut). Classical guitars, however, are usually about 52mm at the nut, which makes the flamenco a little easier on the left playing hand.
