Micro Tilt Neck

Started this discussion. Last reply by Tom Gilreath May 14, 2018. 8 Replies

Hi, guys!  I would appreciate some info on how to install a screw-on neck with a micro tilt feature.  Seems like it would be a good way to keep the action at reasonable levels.  I think I have an…Continue

Action too high

Hey Tom. Saw one of your builds at your folks house a couple years ago. Nice work. I had just built my first cbg then. Working on 5th build now. Close to finish line on this one. Got few more in planning stage.

Hello Tom,

In regards to your question in the chat earlier...I put wings on the sides of the neck where the bridge sits....when using a mag pick up...there in no need to worry about box resonance because the pick up uses the vibrations from the string to transfer sound...so no need for the gap between the lid and the neck....I'm am posting a small diagram so you can see what I talking about. Hope it helps.

The dark areas are if you want the gap....from the side view the dark area show where the wings are located.
