It’s not what you think. The scarf joint, is the weirdest, most pain in the arse joint to make in all of woodworking. I love it though. It looks simple enough, but that is misleading. Here is my effort- A 15 degree neck to headstock joint inlaid with Walnut/Maple/Walnut Veneer. One thing I completely understand is why a custom instrument is valued on the low-end at $1500. There are so many steps, so much detail, but this is all worth it. When its done I’ll have a bass I made, a true extension of myself. I plan to use this as my primary bass. So now my two worlds of woodworking and music truly intersect on a deeply personal and intimate level. At the bottom Drop D.
