As some of you may recall I had problems with my new strat neck as in the guitar tech totality screwed it up.Well after a few weeks of waiting the guy who built me the guitar decided to send me a new neck, because he did not want to draw this out too long with a he said she said argument. To cut a long story short i received the neck last week and found a guitar maker who only lives 30mins drive away took it to him and he drilled and fitted the neck a complete setup and installed a brass nut for me and now its pukka.

Jamie the guitar builder is a great bloke and will defo get my next custom from him, he's starting to get a very good rep and recently built 15 bespoke tele casters for Status Quo(on word of mouth) one of whitch i have seen today a gold flake one with Seymour Duncan hot&cool rails and i have to say the quality is amazing and his pricing is very reasonable here's his my space page and website

I have to say the photos dont do his guitars justice there suburb in the flesh so to speak

Here's the pics of my guitar

As said, I had to stop as I moved away from home and now I have no where to work on it here in my apartment, as I can't have all that dust flying around. Maybe I'll some day bring it here and work on it in the basement - but that's far too cold here in the winter.

Hey Bondy, how do you like the scalloped neck?

I had mine done a few weeks ago. It's awesome, but takes time getting used to.

To be completely honest I dont find it hard to play on pretty much the same as a normal board, vibratos definitely better on it thats for sure. Also longer fingernails dont matter as much laugh.gif laugh.gif

Yeah, that's been my experience. In fact, I find myself wanting to dig in a little harder sometimes to touch the fingerboard. Now, that's defeating the purpose right? laugh.gif laugh.gif - good advice about the fingernails! biggrin.gif

The logo and the Malmsteen sig came attached from the dealer who sent him the replacement neck so that was a bonus
