Looking to make a neck profile similar to the 1" U "nocaster profile, but we need something to go by. Anyone in the GTA have a guitar or neck we can borrow? Thanks!
That actually sounds like it'd be a better fit, but I may end up going slimmer. I'm planning a build with @Ayr Guitars and we're just wanting to see if his tooling can do that profile or if I'm better off ordering a Warmoth. It's still in the discussion phase. I would hazard a guess that it's the U profile in question. Big ole necks aren't a very common thing these days I bet.Why do you need a neck to go by? Make it a U and make it 1". I'm having Hansen guitars make mine with exactly those specs. I have my masterbuilt Nocaster here in Brantford if you want to come down and take pics and measure. Its a U and the thickness according to the build sheet are .990 at the first and .990 at the 12th. Slightly under an inch and about the most perfect feeling neck I've ever played.
The new neck is for my 52 reissue tele. I've had Nocasters before with a full inch thickness as well as a Crook T with a full inch. Those necks always felt just on the verge on being too big. However I always got used to them. My Masterbuilt nocaster feels as perfect a size neck as I've ever had. I've had it for a few months and felt it must have been just slightly smaller than my other Nocasters. So I checked the build sheet and sure enough it was a bit smaller. You wouldn't think you'd feel it with such a small difference. I never measured my crook or other Nocasters so maybe they were just over an inch.I am happy to wait to compare. I am curious as to what that last 0.010" will be like in comparison. Is the new neck for that guitar?
