    I keep going back and looking at the black one on their site :drool
    The specs seem to be what I'm looking for, but I'm just curious about anyone's impression with them. That neck has got to feel good. Is the Music Zoo a good place to deal?

    Yeah, it's a good place to do business with.

    I've been looking at them too, but damn, their nonecks are relic'd hard...I think too much for me.:(

    I picked my up from the Music Zoo about a month ago. Since I received I have sold my other Strats (Clapton, Mayer, Lonestar) becuase I will honestly never use them again. The NoNeck is the perfect size for me. The back of the neck on mine is lightly relic'd with just the edges showing wear.

    These have captured my interest too.
    Glad someone had these done.

    That's a pretty cool concept, IMO.

    Funny that they're located in 'Little Neck', NY.
    Hey ecbluesman, yours is different from the black one on their site, so they must have more than one black one.

    That's funny demon. Never thought of that.

    NoNecks are cool, but sometimes they are close to an 1" at the first fret, depth wise. That's incredibly bulky and log like for me. Some of those necks can run a little slimmer at around .925" and I really like those.

    Since I grew up close to thee that didn't strike me.
    Otherwise I would have thought that they came from Great Neck L.I..

    I know the MusicZoo has had a few different black ones. When I was shopping for mine they had 3 I think. This is the only Fender I own, everything else is a Gibson. I would compare the neck as smaller than my 57 RI Goltop but a bigger than a 50's style LP neck. I find it very comfortable. Its very easy to play. The back of mine is not heavily relic'd. I am a Mayer fan, and a Clapton fan, so maybe that was my reasoning for black?

    Oh god, thats just what I wanted to hear. My other 2 are a 52-59 Les Paul conversion and a Guitar Clinic LP '59 replica. The replica has a big D neck and the conversion has a less huge C shape, so the Noneck sounds about right, thanks for the comparison..

    Did you play all 3 of the black ones? Was there much difference in them, in regards to playability, neck size and tone? Or were they all the Nonecks pretty similar?
