avengers63 Posted March 10, 2009 Report Share Posted March 10, 2009 john - make a headless corvus!! I'd LOVE to. Wanna work out a deal for you to make me a headless neck? How would I take a normal, non-tiltback headstock (Fender style) neck and convert it into a headless neck? There's more to it than just cutting off the headstock and reshaping the end. I have a Steinberger, which has a zero fret and a tailpiece-like object that is mounted on the end of the neck which the strings hook through. Assuming I could even find the tailpiece that would mount on the end of the neck, is there any real possibility of interference with the truss rod? Another thought might be to leave a little flap of wood sticking out past the nut and put in ferruels, running the strings through the back of the flap and over the nut. I seem to remember seeing something similar on a Scott French guitar once. Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
