To make sure that the arm and belly contours are accurate to original spec guitars, I designed and created a three axis duplicating router that is better suited to this kind of work than any other routing duplicator on the market. Here again, real vintage guitars were used as templates.
To define my neck profiles, a similar process to body duplication was used to copy exact neck profiles. For the perfect neck profiles, I use a 4 axis router duplicator (another one of my creations), with original necks mounted as templates to copy the neck profiles of many of the most popular Fender® guitars onto a master template. In the shot to the right, you can see the master template on the right and a ’56 style profile receiving its final contour.
