    Default Who can make me a real good Axis custom neck?

    Hey guys,

    as most of you know EBMM is stubborn and do not offer the Axis with a wider neck.

    I love my Axis but would like for it to be a bit wider at the nut.
    1.650 is about perfect for me since the nut on the Axis is less than 1 5/8

    thanks!!!

    Look up Scott Fletcher. HIGHLY recommended for custom necks.

    I have a lefty body and neck from Scott. The craftmanship is top notch. Scott is a wood grader, so he can get you exactly what you want for wood and grades of wood. The best thing I can say about Scott is that when I worked with him, he always kept me updated and sent pictures throughout the process. I need to contact him myself. I want a new neck for my olp axis and he is about the only one who can do the neck and deliver at a fair price.

    I have 2 custom necks from him (and other things). One of them has a very similar profile as the Axis style neck. Absolutely TOP notch quality and great communication from Scott at all times.

    And I can speak for durability too. I've had one of the necks since sometime in 2009, and it's been on my #1 guitar. That guitar has thousands and thousands of hours of abuse on it over the last 2 years, and it has stayed perfectly straight and looks like I just bought it yesterday (except for a little bit of dirt on the fingerboard from heavy use. I'm a session guitar player, so that guitar has seen a LOT of use.... 13 hour days of straight playing... that kind of thing, and it has never had a problem.

    Here are some pics of both of my Scott Fletcher necks, made perfectly to spec:
    [Note: the bodies were made by me, and on the first guitar pictured, Scott also sold me the plain maple cap blank]











    One thing I will say regardless of where you get your neck, GET STAINLESS STEEL FRETS! I absolutely abuse necks with my left hand, and on normal frets I'll burn through a neck (as in get so many divits in the frets that it's not playable) in probably 4-5 months of heavy use. With Scott's necks, both are stainless and there are NO worn spots on the frets yet. For me, they pay for themselves over and over.
