Carved neck

I'm very pleased with this neck. It's on the mahogany / cedar soprano I made without a commission but now it's sold. It's going to Luleå in the north of Sweden.

I made the heel with a sharp ridge, and tried an inverse volute at the headstock end. The mahogany wasn't very forgiving, I had to use a very sharp chisel in order to avoid any splintering.

In the pic it almost looks as the profile is V-shaped, but it's C-shaped as usual.
