Hello again everyone.
I'm working on shaping the neck on an F5, working roughly from the Siminoff book.
I'm looking for some guidance on what thickness/material you all use for the veneer on the back of the peghead.
I have an ebony headstock veneer that is ~0.10 inches or so, and trying to sand that down on a belt sander has proven difficult.
I also have some 0.020 inch "ebonized" veneer from LMI, which I thought would make things easier, but I don't love the look of it. Plus it seems too thin.
Ideally I think I'd like an ebony veneer at roughly 0.40 or so, but haven't seen these available anywhere.
Any good sources for this stuff?
Any thoughts on proper thickness?
What about the thin ebonized veneer? Good? no good?
You can see I'm full of questions and I'm all ears.
