The off-center hole in the neck would only be seen if you were looking at it in the model. The good thing is that you can fix it in the model and the next one will be just about perfect.

$75 worth of experience is pretty cheap, even though nobody likes to feel like they wasted money. I wouldn't even call it wasted since the neck (and the body) is still usable as far as I can tell.

Thanks guys. T1, youre right the experience gained is really cheap for that price. And it just makes me want to mill more stuff
But now weŽll just have to adjust the surfaces on the model and go for the second attempt.

I think it looks great cant even tell the feedback is slightly off center when the feedneck is screwed on. I usually just use some Merlin extrusion when I'm testing/proving a mill design.

Good LORD. That must have been in the machine for a solid hour. Looks real pretty though. And trust me, there's much more expensive lessons than a not quite wasted blank of aluminum.

Very nice work indeed.
