Day 1:The Headstock and cavity

So day one set out to cut the guitar head out so it was no longer square and create a cavity for my XY unit.

After jig sawing out a sharper then usual tele head I set about filing down and sanding the head so that it was eventually smooth and shaped how I liked it. This took just less than an hour.

However I discovered that I did not have an milling tools to create the cavity in the wood for my XY pad. So I set to find one. Asking Maria’s dad, mums school and emailing Kennellar Guitar studios Aberdeen to see if they could assist.
