Hi Chuck. The redneck has a tapered fretboard. 1 1/4 at nut. Bone “snow drift” nut. Almost 2 inches at the base of the board. I used an ebony fret board blank and Gitty med,med frets. Striped with dark blue oil paint. The red neck is oil paint also. 21 1/2 inch scale length. Message me for a very reasonable price. Thanks Chuck. ... Dave
