  1. Need Help Help refinishing a neck

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    Hi all - I just ordered a non finished neck from Guitar Mill. (I really like their stuff). I'll need to get the neck finished - hopefully nitro - plus get tuners mounted and mounting holes drilled. I'm in London ON - any idea where I can take it to get some quality work done? Thanks - :)
  2. Need Help Fret Level required??? New Buzz...

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    Hey all, So I have a guitar with a Kulson harmonica bridge, neck through made of several laminations, very similar to Jerry Garcia’s Wolf guitar. In December I took it in to have the fret ends filed, and the tech straightened the neck some. Following that there was some new buzzing on the sixth...
  3. EJ Strat Neck Specs?

    Electric Guitar
    hey all, Anybody know the depth 1st and 12th fret as well as the width at the 12th fret on the EJ strats? I love the ash maple combo but I’ve never played the v before, and I’m not going out to someone’s house to try one out right now with all that’s going on in the world.... I’m used to a slim...

  5. Neck back bowed

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    Have an old Frankencaster i made around 1990 that my nephew got when he was starting out and well finally back to me... A bit rough, but kinda cool to work on again. Everything needing fixed is done, but the neck has a back bow. I loosened it up to where the truss rod end spins freely and...
  6. Hand size, neck profiles & nut widths

    Electric Guitar
    Hope you folks can shed some light on this. The combo you see below is quite comfortable for me: But I read an article recently re skinny necks & how awful they are for chording, especially with larger hands. (I don't think my hands are large per-se, they are long-ish though.) Yet, I...

    This has to do with my other thread started a couple of years ago. https://guitarscanada.com/index.php?threads/project-to-affinity-and-beyond.77839/ I dragged my ass completing this one, and am really close to the final setup. I have 2 necks. The original Squier Affinity neck and a Maverick...
  8. Making a Neck... How to Reinforce

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    So... got another thread about some wood I got.... semi-related but different question. One of the ideas I had was to take a slab of Walnut and basically cut out the entire guitar with 1 piece. Body and neck. Then put the Spalted Elm on top. I know 1/4 cut wood is ideal for necks, but, the...
  9. Watco Satin Lacquer for Neck

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    I bought an unfinished neck off Guitar Fetish. Though their unfinished necks look more like a finished neck stripped than a neck not completed. Anyways... '90s style BCRich neck with the batwing headstock. Doing a guitar for my nephew. Anyways, good shape, needs a bit if finishing and sanding...
  10. Mustang with longer neck

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    I'm building a guitar from stock fender parts and I decided that I wanted to put together a Mustang, I really like their shape and sound. Although I really like the Mustang, it's a short scale guitar and I don't think that the neck scale is right for me. Does anybody know how I can put a normal...
  11. Guitars necks after winter season

    Electric Guitar
    Hi guys, I got my strat today and noticed its neck is a bit concave. I tried to adjust its truss rod but I couldn't because it was getting very hard to straighten it (turning clockwise). I had my strat adjusted during the winter but now I'm afraid the truss rod or the neck is screwed. Have you...
  12. Can any neck be straightened?

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    My girlfriend has an Art and Lutherie Folk acoustic guitar (http://www.artandlutherieguitars.com/folkspruceburg.html) with a pretty warped neck. As a result the action is terribly high and it's a pain to fret anything. Is it possible to get the neck straightened, or is it too late? Also, on a...
