This is from mid-June, in the background of a shot of Pierre's fingerboard being glued and clamped..

Wow! So, a whole new neck? I had thought it was going to be just a new fingerboard and peghead on the existing neck. I'm curious how the neck will be fitted to the body. Will the top be taken off? The back? Will the neck be visible from the front or back?
 
A fascinating build, for sure!

This neck is for Pierre's instrument, NOT for the Starfire!  I just happened to have it in the background and thought it might be nice to show a pic of it in the shop with all the other stuff going around.  ;-)  While I was there I hadn't even thought of taking a picture of it explicitly, although I did admire it.

Ah, I thought Pierre's neck was in the background. My mistake. Nice to see a view of the shop, in any case.

Any chance you can send me the original bridge? We're just being annoying about the scale length issue here.

Done! You should have it in a couple of days.

Hey Mica,
 
Did the bridge make it down there?

It's been on my mind recently.

The clamp on Pierre's neck looks off center to me....
