That's not a black guitar, this is a black guitar...

The pinched neck on the back, but not the front, of the neck is strange.

unlikely the neck is pinched. I believe we're seeing a white reflection from the two equally spaced long shoplight-style lights lighting it from above, the same ones we see reflected just a little higher up the neck.

I call that the heel of the neck. at the top, there is sometimes a volute to reinforce the head stock on an angled head.

Heel is a most excellent name for it.

Another guitar build but a hollow body, or semi-hollow body, from Sapele Mahogany with mucho hand work. Doesn't get boring though, he moves right along.

Very different methods. And the edit skips a bunch. Like how did he get the pots inside? Was the back not glued on yet? Doesn't really show it.

Yeah, I was wondering how that happened. After he had the pots all connected and working the next thing he's fishing wires out.

I thought this was an interesting article about Fender, Paul, and Bigsby trying to build the Rock 'n Roll guitar.
