I had my '94 American Std. Strat in for a setup and the truss rod is maxed out with the action/relief still somewhat high. I've known this was coming for a couple years and specifically asked the tech to check the rod and see if there was anything they could do. At this point the recommendation is go down a gauge of strings or get a new neck because this one now seems to have a permanent (slight) bow that the rod just can't adjust anymore. I don't want to go lighter on the strings so I've started to look at neck builders. I asked the tech for his recommendations and he liked Warmoth. I've also seen a lot of people here using USACG or Musikraft. I know Fender sells necks now as well, but I'm thinking of going with a custom build because I think I want something a bit different than the normal Fender specs. I've also played one of the recent Fender Strats with the solid rosewood neck and love the feel of that, and Fender just doesn't sell anything similar as a part. As far as what I'm looking for, I'm pretty sure I want the following: Unfinished neck; considering 1-piece rosewood or pau ferro, possibly even roasted maple with a laminated board Rosewood, pau ferro, possibly ebony fretboard "59 Roundback"-type profile Radius not less than 9.5", maybe a compound radius board Tusq or bone nut Standard fretwire; no stainless frets Re-use Fender locking tuners off my current neck Standard Strat headstock; don't care about the logo So, any recommendations based on those criteria? Who has everybody been using recently for neck builds?
