Maple neck-through guitar neck w/o fretboard - Bass
Build your own neck-through solidbody bass guitar. Neck-through guitars have better sustain than bolt-on or set neck guitars, and you can shape the neck heel so it's not in your way. Building a neck is the hardest part of building a guitar. I've done some of the work for you. All you need to do is add a fretboard, body wings, shape the headstock, rout the body for electronics, and put it together.

Total length is approximately 46". Neck is 1-3/4 wide, 5/8" deep at nut. Body is 1-3/4 thick, 2 13/16 wide x approximately 13 long past end of fretboard. Total headstock is 2 - 3/4" wide x 8 long. Neck is a bit oversize so you can custom shape it to your liking.

One change I have made to my necks is a shallower neck angle on headstocks. More like a PRS, but I can still build them the old way.

* 2-way adjustable truss rod
* unshaped headstock so you can design your own custom shape
* slightly oversized neck profile for shaping your own custom neck shape

As with all wood products, there may be some blemishes in the wood, this is natural.
Hand-made from a single piece of hard Maple, neck is kiln dried.

Also includes basic instructions for building a guitar. Requires some woodworking experience and basic knowledge of guitars to build. Does not include any hardware(pickups, tuners, switches, etc). Please contact me with any questions or if you need to see additional pictures.

I can add a rosewood or ebony fretboard, install frets, or I can also finish the headstock and other small items. Here are some prices:
Ebony fretboard 60.00
Rosewood fretboard 40.00
Install fretboard 30.00
Marker dots 20.00
Install/finish frets 90.00
Up to 24 frets, fretboard prices are for 34" scale only.
E-mail me for more details.

Payment must be made through paypal before I start any custom work, and sorry, but I can't always accept returns on customized items.

I don't always have these ready to ship, and may have to build to order. I can do some customizing, such as a longer headstock or leave the neck larger, etc. Please email me for details
Options: Add fretboard, frets, etc. email me for details.
