3. Partly finished necks

E- Guitar, as well as E-bass necks (both bass types – with short or long scale), are offered in x-pieces maple or mahogany. Each neck includes one of our patented aluminium truss rods, which is included into the price. The neck blanks enables you a kind of „individuality" with reference to the saddle width, thickness and shape. It is possible to adjust the truss rod at the head or at the end.

Type A: angled head panel. Necks are not fitted, because they are out of one piece.

 Type B: flat head, partly glued out of a few pieces.

We are able to serve you blanks of replacement necks for E-guitar, which we produce exactly according to American standards, in combinations of maple/maple, maple/rosewood and maple/ebony.

Our necks are furnished with 21 frets, 9.5´ fingerboard radius and 8.5/10 mm holes for machine head. The screw for the truss rod is fixed at the end of the neck / vintage or at the head / modern style.
Higher qualities such as flamed or birds eye maple, paddle head, 21 frets are manufactured only in small quantities which leads to long delivery times.
We can deliver our replacements for the necks for the E-bass, which are made of one piece (maple/maple) or with fingerboard (maple/rosewood, maple/ebony).
