    Yes, a period of good humour and musical bliss was enjoyed in the sanatorium.. I can recommend it to anyone having anxiety attacks over best guitarists, custom shop guitars, non Fender Strats, and of course bloody breathing wood and nitro.. :rolleyes: ha ha..

    I have a squier I’m using as a partscaster and I thought about swapping the neck to go from rosewood board to maple but the neck really is so good and it has the oversized headstock which I really dig. So I’m gonna owe the neck and invest that money in other places.

    the neck is purely a matter of personal taste... and some just have to have a specific logo on the headstock... but if quality and bang for the buck is of importance, the AllParts necks cannot be beat.. with one caveat... the one caveat that's extends to any other neck you buy.... fret work..

    Any neck you get, unless the one selling it guarantees it's been leveled and crowned, will need the procedure... so with that in mind... I guess that negates the caveat as it relates to the AllParts neck..

    If you are of a mind, and good with tools. the fret work is a "piece of cake"... here's how...

    Hmm thanks for the heads-up and correction... it appears that I was mislead... That sound was me giving myself an uppercut for being so gullible.

    Hmmm... Okay, I see my self indulgence has drawn some sage wisdom. I deserved that... I will be more careful about things in future. I'm not being sarcastic or patronising...
    Anyway no hard feelings.

    This is good advice. Also, don't mind the people quick to criticize or judge, if they aren't offering constructive criticism then pay no attention.
