A Great Neck is Key to a Wonderful Guitar

Our building process and ergonomic heel shape allows for effortless upper fret access and a neck that will retain uncompromised playability for a lifetime. Both our set necks and our bolt on system provide superior strength, rigidity and sustain.

Ergonomic Heel Shape & Press Fit Compression Neck Joint

Our neck joint is engineered to be as strong and rigid as a glued in neck, but with the ability to repair or replace the neck without sacrificing sustain or tone. This enables you to effortlessly drive your creativity and style throughout your entire Born guitar and straight into your amp. No undertone is lost, and notes are articulate, flexible and sustained. It all starts by building our necks so that they must be press fit precisely into place. We literally use a rubber hammer to gently tap the neck heel tight into the neck pocket. The neck is then locked into place by industrial vice sized power. All this boils down to excellent playability and superior tonal range.

Tension Correct Neck Design

Our neck building process ensures that your guitar will play its best for years to come by shaping it under string tension. This means that unless your changing string gauges or tunings you'll almost never need to adjust your truss rod. This is your Future Vintage™ Guitar.

Hand Finished Necks

All of our hand finished necks come in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate almost any player, and they feel super smooth and never sticky (unless you’re sticky) so you can play your best! All our guitars come standard with binding style fret ends. That's Right! No fret ends - just like a bound neck, so you will never have to feel or see those awful sharp fret ends found on most guitars. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it because we know you will absolutely love it!
