Please check all the hardware fits before finishing your body.
We never machine bodies that we haven't checked the parts fit, so please get in touch and you can get the correct hardware.
Seriously? If you are going to spend money on building a guitar don't cut corners with a cheap neck. Most of the tone qualities are influenced by the neck. Stick to quality parts only, like ours.
