How Does It Play?
This neck sets up with low action and no buzz! The string action measures 4/64” on the low E at the 12th fret and even lower on the high E. The early 60’s-inspired profile is a nice medium C with just the right amount of shoulder to support the hand and thwart fatigue. The back of the neck is sanded down smooth, and the contoured neck heel allows easy upper-fret access.
