Step 3.4. continued
When I had marked the position of the neck on the underside of the head (it was all upside down at that stage),
I took the neck off and fixed (glued and nailed) the scotia to the head slightly away from the position marks. That was to ensure that the
neck would have a bit of play inside the scotia i.e. the head was not a tight fit.
Itís very important that I allowed a little bit of play. I wanted the neck to be able to slip easily into place.
Having fixed the scotia, I placed the neck on the head to ensure that it fitted easily.
I removed the neck from the head and positioned it on top of the body.There I fixed it permanently in place and ran 1" (25mm) quarter-round wood around the neck, fixing it with glue and nails to both the neck and the body.
