    Default Moses/Graphite Necks

    Has anyone had any experience with graphite necks, in particular Moses necks? i just scored a Kramer USA Pacer body on eBay and am contemplating ordering a neck from Moses. Let me know. Thanks!

    p.s. Not that I'm important or anything, but if anyone's wondering why i haven't been posting lately it's because my company just switched offices and the new setup offers very little privacy. I try to catch up on the goings on around here at night/weekends, when I can though. Peace.

    i have one of the new Steinberger GR guitars with the Moses made Stienberger neck. I really like it. Its very fast & smooth. Mine did develop a stress crack within a year at the heel joint with the body but it was easily repaired by drilling a hole to stop the crack and fill the hole with a small graphite rod from a hobby shop and some black epoxy. Going on 2 years on the repair and its still holding.

    That's the only thing I don't like about graphite necks ... working on them. If it were wood, I'd be doing everything / anything to it. Graphite and carbon fibre introduces some new challenges to maintaining the instrument.

    Thanks for the info. I'm seriously considering it.

    If you do get one, let me know how it goes ... especially if you're getting something Floyd Rose locking nut ready. I'd really LOVE to take a shot at a totally custom guitar that I engineered and the graphite/carbon fibre neck is what I'd want.

    The trick is ... convincing my wife that one more guitar couldn't be a bad idea!
    Good Luck

    Otis,

    Build a wall out of used egg cartons and resume posting here everyday otherwise big trouble will find you.

    On your substantive question, I don't really know too much about Moses necks, but curious as to what you are looking to put it together with.

    haha! a guy called Otis is reporting to me and I recently moved him in a different cubicle!
    I will walk over to him right now and give him a verbal warning for posting on the VHLinks during business hours! I would never do such thing myself!!!




    I am sure he is not a VH fan though

    For pickups, I'm thinking about a Rockfield VWC (bridge), DiMarzio YJM3 (middle) and either a DiMarzio Air Norton or and SD Vitrual Vintage Solo Pro (neck). Definitely locking tuners of some type, but I haven't decided on a bridge - string-through or tremolo. I'll probably go with a Wilkinson, as i'm not a big fan of Floyd's (just my meaningless opinion).
