Our guitar bodies are made of Alder, or Swamp Ash. The bodies go through triage before production, to keep within our weight and resonance specs. Ugly, or clunky wood is rejected. Mahogany is used on 69 thinlines if ordered as such.
Necks are of one piece Maple, or Maple with Rosewood fingerboard construction. Fingerboards are a 10 radius and frets are a Dunlop 6105. Guitar nut width is 1 5/8. Bass nuts are 1 5/8 on P and 1 ½ on J. Neck shapes are Medium C, with an average of .83 depth at 1st fret and .95 depth at 12th fret, and Boatneck (big with a slight V), with an average of .97 at first fret and 1.00 at 12th.
