Mahogany, dovetail carved neck, 25.4/ 25.5", deep Martin-style heel, diamond volute
All our pre-carved Honduran Mahogany necks are CNC (computer numerically controlled) routed from quartersawn wood ensuring accuracy and consistency. Compare the machining to the necks of our competitors, it's far superior! The oversized peghead allows the builders to customize their peghead thickness and shape. The peghead on all this neck has industry standard glued wings on the peghead that are virtually invisible. We recommend our TRSD truss rod with this neck. The diamond volute (pictured) is decorative, but also adds a bit of mass at a structurally weaker point on the neck. It can be filed off you prefer.
The heel face on this Martin™-style neck measures 1.100" wide and .890" tall and has a cathedral shape.

When fitting the dovetail, the neck should be about 3/8" proud of the heel block. This gives you more room to maneuver to get the centerline and angle just right, once the sides are attached. (The dovetail-mortise fit should not be a "glove fit" as you get it from us.) Work the shoulders of the neck first; use carbon (articulating) paper, and sandpaper to mark and pare away.
