Stage 18) Final sanding.

I like to use slightly worn 150 grit 3M sand paper to sand all sharp corners on the headstock and heel of the neck. Then the back of the neck and top face of the headstock. Use your hand so you can get a feel for the surface of the wood. Try using a sanding sponge block on the edges if over 150 grit. When the neck feels and looks scratch free, the neck is ready for finishing.

Stage 17) Drilling the tuner holes.

Using a template with the center lines for the tuner key locations, pencil the center point of the holes onto the headstock. Next, set up the drill press with the recommended drill bit for the tuners recommend size. Make sure to use a brad point drill bit to get the cleanest cut at the top face and back of the hole. Next, we need to have a backing plate of wood to put behind the headstock so the drill bit does not tear out the grain on the back side of the headstock. After all holes are drilled, block sand top and back with 150 grit 3M sanding paper.
