    I think it's pretty dang nice. If you guys can't tell already, 'Barncasters' are sort of my chosen niche. Maybe 'Rustic' is a better term. The wood I use has flaws, and sometimes it doesn't like to be machined too much, so there can be surface.... 'character'. This one is gonna get some medium walnut Danish Oil like my first build.

    The neck fit blew me away. Great fit.

    That beats my old method of using templates for the routes. Does the program do the string through and change bits to recess the ferrules or is that a different program?

    It could, but that would be a 2-side rout, kind of a pain. I do not like thru-body, but they could be added to the program and drilled by hand for the ferrules on a drill press. Maybe use the bridge for a template, then flip and counter bore.
