USA Custom Guitars replacement necks offer you the best feel, the most options, and the highest quality available anywhere. All of our necks are crafted with hand selected, time tested tonewoods and feature a vintage style one way truss rod for classic tone and lighter weight.
A number of unique features differentiate our necks from those of our competitors. In fact, it took nearly 2 months to design our neck construction method. We knew that if we were going to do it, it had to be done the RIGHT way, not the quickest or cheapest. We are truly proud of our design and we hope you feel the difference when you play our necks on stage, in the studio, or in your living room.
Our US-1 neck has a square heel; the US-2, US-3 and US-4 have a rounded heel. Heel shapes are interchangeable at no extra cost. All Bass necks have a rounded heel, unless otherwise specified. We drill for your choice of tuning keys - Kluson, Schaller, Sperzel, Gotoh, Grover, BML, Planet Waves Locking, etc. (Did we leave any out?) Please specify when you place your order.
Standard Guitar Necks
Our standard necks are 25 1/2" scale with a choice of 21 or 22 frets, made with either 1 or 2 piece construction. One piece necks use a walnut skunkstripe. We also make a 25 1/2" scale 12 string neck, as well as a 22 fret 24" scale neck compatible with our Shagwire body or any other 24" scale bolt-on neck instrument.
Retro-fit Conversion Guitar Necks
We offer three different "alternate" scale replacement necks for those looking for a different feel on their favorite bolt-on body.
All conversion necks work with any standard (25 1/2" scale) body. Square fingerboard end overhangs are only available on these retro-fit conversion necks - sorry no rounded fingerboard ends due to the way in which the different scale is achieved.
Super Wide Guitar Necks
For those of you who prefer your necks a bit wider, we offer necks with a 1-7/8" nut width for use on both S and T style bodies only. These necks are constructed with a wider heel (2-5/16") to attain the proper string spacing. Guitar necks with this feature are priced the same as our 2 piece Bass Necks. We can make you an S or T style body with a compatible sized neck pocket for the same price as listed in the Custom Body Pricing section - no additional charges for the wider neck pocket.
Standard Bass Necks
We offer 20 or 21 fret 4 string necks with 34" scale length. Our 34" scale 5-string bass necks are 22 frets with a fingerboard overhang and the 35" scale 5-string bass necks are 21 frets with an overhang. We also have 21 fret 30" scale 6 string bass neck to be used with our Baritone-VI body only. As of Octrober 2006, we no longer make 1 piece bass necks.
For you "lefties" out there, we offer any neck in a left handed version at no additional charge. Since we are a true custom shop, of course we can accommodate just about any special requirements you may have. Please give us a call or fax over a Custom Order Quote Form.
Substitute Dark Indian rosewood for an additional $12.00.
Dark Brazilian Rosewood is rarely available, so we cannot offer it as a standard option. We do get some occasionally, so please call and ask if that's what you're looking for.
Simply oiling a lighter rosewood board can darken it a bit - and it will save you a few bucks. We recommend Guitar Honey or linseed oil.
