Neck Measurment


Recommended Posts

Width or thickness?

That would be one thin (in width) neck!!! j/k

I would guess that the poster is asking about profile thickness and used the term width instead.

Seriously though, all the measurements that I have seen addressing profile thickness have included the fingerboard.

Having said that , 0.77" sounds thin to me. I like a little meatier neck, around 0.85" thick at the first fret.

Not really,

Fingerboard between 3/16" and 1/4" (.1875-.25")

min. 1/8" behind truss (.125")

Truss rod (.25-.375"-double acting, depending on model)

Bare Min.- .5625"(allied double acting, 3/16" board, 1/8" behind the TR)

with more room and thicker parts-.6875" (hot rod, 1/4" freboard, 1/8" behind the TR)

bump up the material behind the truss to 3/16", and use wideer parts-.750"
