    Difficulty measuring neck radius

    Great call on the contour gauge. I found it much easier to determine the radius by first using the contour gauge and then using some music nomad radius gauges to compare to the contour gauge result. And you can do it with the strings on. I included a couple pictures just to show how obvious the...

    Difficulty measuring neck radius

    I get it. But I crave knowledge and I like to tinker. This info is going on my spreadsheet of all the different specs for my seven guitars.

    Difficulty measuring neck radius

    Problem with newly purchased Custom Shop Strat

    I once made a car dealer replace the front bumper on my new car purchase because he drilled holes in it for the license plate without asking me. (NC doesn’t require front license - he did it to tack on his dealership ad plate). So yeah, Id return it.

    I may never play professionally again because of numbness in right hand.

    I hope things improve for you. Your post is eerily timely for me - I have a C6 nerve compression causing numbness/tingling in my thumb/index/partial middle finger. It varies depending on my head/neck position right now, but as things degenerate further, I am concerned how it will affect my...

    Started as an Indio Classic s-type. Decided to bronze it up. Swapped in bronze pickups, bridge, tuners, knobs, jack plate, strap knobs. Painted pickguard edge and string trees bronze.

    Any Love for Cort Strats?

    My first guitar was a Cort strat back in the 80s. Was my only guitar for years - loved it. Gigged with it, recorded with it - great strat sound. it’s the black one in the pic. Just bought a G290FAT - just got it a couple days ago, haven’t set it up yet. Beautiful guitar, gets great reviews.

    My latest partscaster …

    I honestly don’t care if it tarnishes. Cheap enough to just replace again. It’s mostly a showpiece, unless somehow it sounds awesome.
