Wishing to know if this site has any members interested.
I made a billet neck with a lightweight structure
machining to .030 - .015 to 12 oz total.

And wish to swap notes with other CNC artists.

Hello! i hope this forum is at least partially alive, i would also love to swap notes, although i do not have much. I'm very new here and keen on learning to design these kind of instruments, so if anyone has any experience in owning/playing an aluminum neck guitar and could contribute a few answers:
An accurately measured egc neck thickness, this is vital to my study, and i can't seem to find it online oddly enough.
Does the backbow created by the truss rod and fret falloff at the high frets in traditional wood necks need to be accounted for when designing a completely aluminum neck? (from internet research the answer is most likely no but i want an owner's opinion)
How wide do the fret slots need to be for this kind of neck? Would they need to be wider than the standard 0.023"?
