I have been shaping the neck for the Purple Heart Guitar . It is made from one piece Mahogany and is stiffened with Carbon Fibre rods . This is a 12th fret fit to the body and will have a 1-3/4" nut width . I have fashioned the heel to the shape I have used on all my mando's and if you notice the Headstock has a "Arrow" shape . Not sure how its gonna work , I think OK , at least it looks different .

You can tell better from the picture below that the head stock actual has an angle where the tuners are and is bowled out in back.

The Picture below really shows the " Arrow" angle that I was shooting for .

I hope you enjoyed your short look through my wood shop . Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great day.
