The profile of my standard neck is best described as the nicest '59 Les Paul you laid your hands on!

It has a depth at the 1st fret of 22mm (7/8"), at the 12th fret it's 24mm (15/16").

Optional neck depths are 21mm or 23mm at 1st fret to 23mm or 25mm at 12th fret.

Fingerboard Inlays:
If standard 6mm Mother-of-Pearl dots or small offset blocks don't take your fancy, then let's chat about it! Don't forget, all my inlays are done by hand, not computer - they take a great deal of time and can therefore add a lot to the price of your guitar.

All guitars are adaptable to receive standard or locking tuners

My favourite pickups are Seymour Duncan, DiMarzio, Tom Holmes and Harmonic Design. However, I'll fit anything you want.

Each guitar has standard placement for the pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls but various wiring options (custom coil-splits etc.) are available, depending on pickups chosen.
