    I bought 2 Tele necks from Musikraft, zero complaints. I would certainly recommend them.

    Pretty good my friend. I have a Musikraft Blackguard #4942 profile Roasted Birdseye Maple Premium 4A (Bloody mouthful) on my partscaster.

    That stinks. Any employee with that many years deserves better treatment on their way out (excluding the obvious exceptions). Not even a small going away party? I probably got one of the last few necks you did before leaving. Fret work was spot on.

    Good luck with the new path. Working for yourself is much more enjoyable anyway. Did that about 11 years ago and I will never work for anyone again (unless the pay was double what I make with a nice severance package in writing).

    The virus thing kinda ended it a week ahead of time so who knows maybe they woulda did something. We will never know. Haha. Still I had a lot of good memories I will keep. Some not so good but hey life pulls in different directions sometimes.

    Late to the party here but sorry to hear the news, rough times all around.

    If it makes you feel even a little better the necks I have on order have both blown past their current 8-10 week guesstimates. My understanding is that Warmoth had a massive influx of orders during the closure so I'd assume so did MK as well so I can wait, but hopefully the products are worth the wait. I do respectable fretwork and can fix little things but we'll see.

    I'm waiting on a couple of necks.
    I'll report back once I get them.
    Never had problems with them. I always work the the necks a bit- edges, fret levelling, finishing- but the basic product has always been excellent.

    Sorry to hear of your poor treatment, @vinyldiscman
    Was always impressed by the fretwork.

    It’s all good. I had to split off from them eventually it was just how it was meant to be. I got buried in custom orders also especially from the start of the pandemic.

    Real nice. I like the pickup combination.

    What kind of bridge is that?

    Thanks. It is a Forney. He hand machines everything. Very high quality and NOT expensive. He has a Reverb store.
