Newbie- Order of "kit" assembly?
So- am semi-new to guitar building and completely new to the forum! My first kit was an SG-type 12/6 double neck. didn't come out great but not awful either and sounds ok. It has glued/epoxied in necks. Just recently acquired a strat kit. Of course it's got a bolt-in neck. Am a bit apprehensive to drill the 4 holes and twist in the screws- worrying if the neck might crack. It must happen now and then although I've never seen it. My other question IS- I haven't checked the frets and neck with a rocker or gauge yet but in the event the frets need leveling - is it fine to do that before drilling the neck fastening holes as long as the neck fits snugly in the pocket? Hope this wasn't confusing-
