I can't find why I can't make my model solid

Hi, I'm new on onshape and surface modeling. I'm trying to modeling a guitar neck on onshape and i can't enclose my model. I can't see any gap between the surfaces and the model seems closed to me. can anybody help me?

    Did you work it out? Neck looks solid now. Any particular reason why you did this using surfaces?

    Hi Neil, thank you for you answer. Yes, I got anxious and tried to go a new way!! I could use the enclose only in the  front of the neck (the part that is solid now), the other part of the neck have some problem and the enclose command dont work. So I separated into two parts to try to locate where the problem is.

    I'm trying to model using surface because of the joint of the neck with the heel and with the head stock, it was to difficult with solid modeling (using alibre design software).

    Here is your guitar neck done all with solid modeling. You might find this method more efficient when using Onshape. Compare the number of steps in the below linked document to when working primarily with surfaces.

    Steve, Thank you very much for the class! the way you modeled it was much more efficient!! and changed the way I was seeing that joint. Not to mention that the model was much cleaner than mine. from now on I will do it that way
