Torch Neck Finish

Recommended Posts

I've never torched anything besides copper pipes, but I imagine there's probaby a way to get on and get off real fast so that you brown the surface without actually heating the "meat" of the neck. Like charring a hamburger while leaving it rare and juicy on the inside. (mmm, hamburger :D ) I guess one way of testing it would be to get a piece of maple about 1/8" thick. Then torch one side of it, and immediately touch the other side of it to see what kind of heat you've transferred. You definitely don't want the truss rod to get hot. That could translate into glue softening at the fretboard. If you have a scarf joint I'd watch out for that too.
