    Default OLP, Axis or Wolfgang Neck?

    Anyone have one lying around they might want to part with? I'm building a guitar and want to use one of these necks. You can contact me through this site or my band's site: www.myspace.com/ld50music.

    Thanks!

    Is it all that hard to make a neck or a pretty easy process?

    I think if you've never done it before or don't have the right tools it'll be hard.

    Look at my thread again on having a neck made and contact both Kyle (Divebomb) and deep6. See about having one made.

    I bought an unused OLP neck once and found it to be not a very good cut of maple and nothing like an Axis or Wolfgang neck in feel.

    I'm looking for the all maple neck one, I'm watching the other Wolf one on ebay too. I just started cutting the body tonight...I have NO idea what it will turn out like, but sure is fun to get rolling on this! Pics are on the band's site....www.myspace.com/ld50music.

    Will it be a Floyd or hardtail? The other one up on eBay has a vintage nut.

    Floyd...that was a concern of mine too, a friend of mine said you can use either...is that right? Can I convert a non-locking nut neck to a locking one by modifying the neck or do I need to buy one that already has the locking part designed into it?

    USACG's stuff looks pretty cool too...how much did you pay for a custom neck from them though?

    You can convert a vintage nut to a Floyd, but it will be a tight squeeze, and you'll have to drill for and mount a Floyd string tree. Wolfie necks with locking nuts were actually about a 1/2" longer to accomodate the extra space the locking nut needed.

    I've been talking with Tommy from USA...he's great...he's the one I'm going to go through. Resonable price and is willing to work with me to get it as close to what I'm looking for. Thanks for the lead!
