    Am looking at their Tele neck, Allparts TRO-22.

    I like the fret ends to the edge of the fb w no or shallow bevelling.
    (btw, Fender American Standards do a great job of this now, they use to have heavy bevelling)

    *Are Allparts' frets right to edge of the fb, with shallow-scant bevelling?



    thanks

    Thanx for replies.

    Papajuice,
    Will prolly go w USACG or Warmoth where I can specify bevel, as I want a flatter than
    9.5" radius. The Fender mention was just an observation thru the yrs.

    Thread readers concur with melecaster?

    The Allparts necks that I used years back all had a standard bevel.

    My Allparts necks had the standard bevel...but I refretted mine right out of the box as I didn't care for their stock frets. However, the stock frets will need leveled and crowned for optimum playability so maybe you could address the beveling when that's done.

    Well for clarification:
    an Ebay dealer sent me detailed photos of the Allparts neck I am interested in.
    Fret is to the end of fb w VERY little bevel, which is what I need.

    You may wanna check over at TDPRI with Rob DiStefano.. he completely preps, finishes the AllParts necks and includes a level and crown for a most reasonable price..
