MGB Guitars new Versa-Neck is a revolutionary product that makes building a cigar box guitar easier. Since the cover thicknesses on boxes can vary greatly, getting the height of the finger board correct in relation to the top of the box can be a challenge. The Versa-Neck allows the builder to easily adjust the stagger between the finger board and the heel with great precision. Simply slide the two pieces together to get the right stagger. Other unique features include a 5/8 inch headstock which is the right thickness for most tuners. The heel piece of the versa neck is a full 1 inch thick providing rigid support even if notched for a pickup.
Strength: The body of the neck is constructed of high quality, locally sourced, durable oak wood. We used top rated wood glue to attach the neck to the headstock, and placed the scarf joint is on the headstock for additional strength.
Convenient Design: We designed our necks with the builder in mind. Our headstocks are 5/8 inch thick and MGB tuner-ready! No need to recess your tuners. Simply drill the necessary holes and install. Neck with paddles are extra large at 5-1/2 inch long & 3-3/4 inch wide, giving you the flexibility to cut the headstock to any desired shape.
Variations: Being the nature of wood the grain patterns will be different from each neck. This makes each its own personal design. Occasionally there may be a bit of back-bow. We do not use heavy bow wood. When using extremely lightly bow make try our best to bow back and not forward. This is better when string tension is applied.
Finish: These are unfinished necks. You need to cut, drill, and sand and/or veneer for your desired effect. These personal effects make it your own neck.
