    hey guys,
    i finally had some time to work on the neck!

    i have installed, leveled, crowned and polished the frets today!

    due to a small accident i do not have a zero fret anymore, it will
    be replaced by a standard tusq nut.

    at the end i recognized one fret was not crowned properly
    so i have to fix that the next time...

    all in all i did A LOT today and the guitar is close to be finished,
    just need to re-crown the fret, clean up and re-oil the neck,
    polish the frets one last time and then i can start to assembly the guitar, yeah!
