Recommended Posts

We just did a KILLER les paul re-top, but the guy wants to know if we can replace the neck

Does anyone know any supplier that does set-neck replacement necks?

I would even be open to creative ways to make Carvin, warmoth, etc. be converted to set necks...

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Dave

Warmoth necks are quite easy to do this ith, if you get the 24.75 scale. Also the neck must be top adjust. Just route to the fretboard the tenon matched to the bod of course. The carvin would be more effoet, but a better joint. Also, there's occasionally a gibbie neck on ebay. Finally, contact Ed Roman. He sells them.

I thought of the neck through idea as well...the only problem is that I need a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard

Carvin only does Maple neck with Ebony fingerboards (if the info on the website is correct)

Anyone who has played the Les Pauls with the maple neck knows the tone difference between the maple & mahogany neck

Not saying that one is better than the other...just VERY differant tones!

Simply route off the excess wood up to the FB. You will need to glue on some extra mahogany for the heel, but it is as simple as routing away excess. I will draw you a pic & post it.
