Neck carving

I carve necks by hand because I like it. I’ve carved over 1,000 by now, split almost evenly between Huss and Dalton and Mule.

Guitars should be “inspirationally transparent”. A player should oooh and ahh and hear things they haven’t heard, which takes them to a new place and then forget all about you and guitar specs.

Part of that equation is having a neck shape that pleases almost everyone. Not too thick but thick in the right places – a bit of a C a bit of a V – a normal 1 3/4 width. The importance is in the subtlety. I haven’t met a CNC programmer with the requisite subtlety.
