Steve's Replacement Neck

Steve's Neck and PickguardRich ChaffinsComment
Hand Carving

I based the neck for Steve off of a previous build that I did for my student Josh.

Specs: Rock maple, big D shape, rosewood neck, 16” radius, 22 frets, last 4 scalloped, oil finish.

The body of the guitar has a kind of granite-style finish, so I decided to echo that in the headstock.

And here's the finished headstock with hardware installed.
