So....New Neck Day! During the latest 20% off everything coupon sale at Ebay I picked up a WD Tele neck from Stratosphere. It came today (a day early no less) and I'm pretty stoked about it. Some of you may remember I purchased a Mighty Mite neck from MF for my Barncaster project a few months ago. It was a V-shaped neck that looked great but didn't meet muster. It had a smaller nut width than advertised and had a much thinner profile. That coupled with the V-shape made it very odd and uncomfortable to hold - it went back. The WD Music neck I got today is a completely different animal. It's advertised as having a 1 11/16" nut width and although I haven't taken measurements yet - it sure feels spot on. It's got a nice beefy feel to it - I'd guess around .86 to .87" at the 1st fret. My first thought was this profile reminds me of my Squier '51 neck - this is a good thing. The frets are nicely done with no sharp edges. The back of the neck is sanded with no finish - feels very very nice. This has re-energized me for completing this project. Here's a few pictures.
