Angled Guitar Headstock CAM Help

This guitar neck is going to be cut from a two inch piece of maple or ash. The reason is that I don't want to use scarf joints and set up a jig and I want a flowing grain. The headstock (portion where the holes are) is at a 10 degree angle. This causes a small portion of the sides and volute area to only be accessible from one side so I can't do a straight 2d contour. I thought that I would be able to manage this using 3d contouring but I am still seeing unmilled stock on the sides of the headstock despite 3d contouring on both sides.

 

I need help. Please advise.

Which toolpath/setup and which area of the part?

If you're referring to the sides of the headstock in the image below, that's because you need to go with:

1) A ball endmill preferably

2) Finer stepdowns.

It's CAM setup's 3 and 4 (this requires a flip mill).

I would not recommend using only Ash as a neck wood. The grain is much too course and there's a reason no one does it commercially. Also consider the balance and center of gravity regarding neck dive.

You will never be able to completely get your model machined without some sort of undercutting surfacing tool. Surface whatever you can using 8% stepover after roughing it out with 1-6mm of stock to leave.
