    So someone had asked about these cheap amazon necks... They are slab rosewood on Maple. Here's one I roached by stupidly not measuring total thickness before screw selection IMG_20170928_152555048.jpg that will make a fine cigar box neck after some trimming, or I'll refret at 24 inch scale length...

    They're she is with her sisters. This guitar is easily as heavy as the hagstrom. It has more sustain for sure, the bigsby clone hasn't hurt at all. IMG_20170930_214642886.jpg

    Guitar looks great. That neck is fixable unless your looking for an excuse to make a CBG.;)

    Really? Do I have to have the piece I knocked out?

    Having the piece helps, but it could still be fixed. You could use a piece of cut off wood, trim it to fit and glue it in place. Fill in any voids with sawdust and glue mix, sand it flush and stain to match. It may be a noticeable fix, but it could be salvaged and add character to your guitar. Or you could fix it and sell it as a "relic'ed" neck.:twisted:
