CS Nocaster … Great fat U neck profile, I love this shape ! Quite 1″ at the nut and 1″ at the 12th fret … and 9.5″ radius if you are lucky or choose the right model.
But very expensive, even used !
So I decided to change my Telecaster route 66 to a nocaster-like tele (see my post about this nice telecaster I assembled a few years ago)
So, I bought an Allparts TMO Fat
Frets need to be dressed (very sharp edges), I will round the fret ends :
I will also “roll” or “round” neck edge (I should have noticed this particular point before having tinted the neck ! Anyway …).
to that :
Lacquer (nitrocellulose aerosol) :
Two different profiles :
- Top : Warmoth vintage modern neck compound radius 10″-16″ (indian rosewood, ebony fingerboard)
- Bottom : Allparts TMO-FAT neck
I’m waiting for nocaster PUs …
