marknorton Posted July 22, 2005 Report Share Posted July 22, 2005 Hi Folks Another newbie here, so please go gentle on me! I'm thinking about making my first guitar, although I'm a bit lost regarding neck profiles. I recently got some Radius Gauges, which I've used to determine (from measuring several different guitars) the fingerboard radius I'd like to use, is there such a thing for comparing profiles. To be honest I wouldn't know a C from a V to a U. I know that sound really dim, cos they're bound to look like the letters do, but can you get some sort of measuring gauge which you can offer up to the neck of any given guitar to determine which category it would fall into? I guess what I'm saying is until I see the cross section of each profile, I'm stumped. If anyone could help it'd be most appreciated, there may be some online diagrams somewhere to download? Cheers in advance. Once I find this out, I'll be hacking up tree's for the body like there's no tomorrow!! Mark Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
