- Remove factory finish from back of neck
- Reprofile neck contour to flattened-D shape
- Asymmetrical neck option (additional $10)
- Sanded smooth to 2000 grit
- Tung oiled to seal and leave buttery smooth
- This process makes any neck play faster and more comfortably. A central flat spine is shaved into the profile, giving your thumb an anchor point, allowing greater precision while soloing. The tung oiled finish is very durable and feels cooler, in addition to being more slippery than lacquer. A must for anyone whose sweaty hands have squeaked on the neck while playing.
- In addition to the above features, the "Asymmetrical Neck" option makes the treble side of the neck thinner, easing the reach to the bass strings. Especially useful on wide necks, bass or extended-range guitars, or guitars hanging low on the strap.
