Ibanez multi laminate replacement neck

July 22, 2020

So here are some images of how we hand built a replacement Ibanez neck with new customer requirements including a reversed headstock and a volute. Also new dot placements:

 

 

all the bits; laminated neck blank with t'rod channel, double action truss rod and parts to make wings for the headstock

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Truss rod fitted and headstock built up and slotted ebony fingerboard ready to fit

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Headstock rough cut out

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carving the neck using surfers and spoke shaves

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After gluing the frets in, its time to dress them

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hers the finished neck besides the one it will replace. The new one is made to accept a Floyd Rose locking nut and so is marginally longer
