xXMikeXx Posted September 15, 2010 Report Share Posted September 15, 2010 (edited) Right... Well i know this has probably been asked like a million times before, but I'm damned if i can find it :S So, My question is, what is the best headstock design on angling? I have a HUGE piece of hard maple and another in black walnut... Let's just say i can make any headstock design i want, so... ramble ramble ramble... Is it better to cut the angle in one piece with no joint or is a scarf joint better? (I want to know so i can make the best quality necks i can) Because... and here is where it's most important to me as this wood was not cheap... (quartersawn) if i have no joint and just cut out in one go, i can make roughly 4-5 thru-necks from it... with a scarf joint it's more like 8-9. Bringing my cost down for each guitar about 20-30GBP. But for me, quality far outweighs cost efficiency. Help?! Thanks, Mike. *EDIT* I realize i contradicted myself a little lol... But although it's expensive, I would much rather sacrifice money than know i could have made a better quality neck.
