    I love the neck on my SRV. When I switch to my maple neck American Deluxe Strat, I have a hard time doing AK-style bends. I'm considering having a maple neck made for the Am Deluxe Strat but I'd like it to be the same contour and radius as the SRV.

    So, I'm thinking of ordering USACG neck, C-Fatback, finished, 6105 (nickel frets), etc...

    Is the SRV 1/4 sawn?

    Great! Thanks.

    What about quarter sawn, vintage truss rod, etc?

    Do they finish in nitro or poly and where can I get a logo?

    Thanks again.

    1/4 sawn and vintage truss rod are no problem. They finish in poly.

    Logo wise try E-bay. if you want the headstock to look like F*****, you will need to do a minor reshaping of the headstock shape.

    Just give Tommy a call.

    Yeah, they have a small hump on the ball at the tip of the headstock that's easily sanded down to make it an "F" shape.

    Remember that the SRV neck is maple w/ pau ferro fretboard, 12" radius, Dunlop 6105 fretwire, and is finished in poly.

    Yes, I thought I already said that? :)

    :confused:

    I thought the earlier clarification was helpful...

    USACG only uses vintage truss rods.

    FWIW, the Roxy poly can be tinted to any color you might care to have and is ultra-thin. The satin variety will gloss over to some degree with play time.

    This isn't exactly vintage.

    Graphite rods aren't standard. Tommy will even recommend against using them in most cases, but they are an option - hence, the photo. You can get either a headstock or heel adjust - your choice. The rods themselves are vintage-spec items. There's no double-expanding brass crap.
