    I have a pdf of the Broadcaster neck 2-d model that I can send you.
    I've edited the pdf to fit two complete sets on a single 24 x 36 page and
    converted all of the colored lines to black .5 pt solid.

    I'm going to build 13 of these necks.
    do a tdpri forum search for "truss rod diameter" and there will be a great
    thread about building a 1-piece neck.

    let me know - jb

    Hi folks!

    I've been using GFS parts (including necks, both maple and rosewood) and I have never had a problem with anything from them.

    I put their neck on a Peavey Tele-style and it turned out to be the easiest to play of all my axes.

    For 30 bucks there might be some fiddling to get things exactly right, like the string height above the headstock - easy fix, their string trees are 2 for 4 bucks - but for me, that's OK, I'm not reselling any thing.

    Always with the caveat "for the price", I am very happy with GFS products and have been using them for quite a while. Plus the shipping is always under 4 days to me in Canada - remarkable!

    Peter

    yes, i know all about string trees...thank you. however that's not my point. I'll leave this non-issue alone and go on playing with my tinker toys.
    Thanks to all

    Nothing like digging up old threads in a needless and unjustified attempt to "bash" a company .
