Neck profiles?

Recommended Posts

I know you were just taking a stab at it Derek, but I don't think the fatback is what he's looking for.

I've had several very old Gibsons, and I bought a fatback and a boatneck from Warmoth.

I LOVE Warmoth necks, but not those! I sold the fatback, and although I still have the boat, I'll be sanding it down before it sees use on anything.

Southpa, the easiest way to figure it out is to buy a set of calipers and just measure the necks you like. It's all downhill from there, no more guesswork, you'll know exactly what measurements you prefer.

I bought a set of calipers for guitar construction use, and realized how great they were for neck measurements as an incidental...they're perfect. :D
