    Did a quick forum search and found a few noteworthy comments but for my own piece of mind....anyone have any personal input they'd like to share?

    I'm inches away from pulling the trigger on a 51' nocaster 0514 model that will wrap up a humbucking Esquire project...:twisted:

    expensive but they sure look like they would be killer. Id get the fattest one they make.

    Im thinkng of getting a Lindy Fralin neck which is an allparts neck thats been shaped and finished in nitro, they're $250 not bad imo.

    I've gotten 2 custom tele necks and one custom body from Musikraft, they make first rate stuff. The necks were the only ones I've ever dealt with that didn't need ANY setup work other than Gibsons that were factory-pleked (including Custom Shop Fender guitars)- have them do a nut and tuners.

    I've used thier necks...sometimes they require some detail sanding, but they offer more vintage details. They sound great.

    I've got one of their fattest necks (solid indian rosewood) on one of my Teles now, and that thing couldn't be nicer.

    I've also got 5 more of their necks and three bodies that were all 100% FLAWLESS.

    They do great work.

    The ones that I have worked with (a whopping THREE of them) have been stellar.
