    Back in the day when Tommy Rosamond was running the show I was a loyal customer of theirs. Their products were top quality and their customer service was awesome! I'm in need soon of another Tele neck and am considering getting another USACG neck, but I have heard they are no longer the same company.
    Is there a better option or what?

    I'll give ya a bump. I'd also be interested to hear any updates about USACG from someone in the know.

    I don't think you can go wrong with Allparts, Musikraft or Warmoth. They all make great stuff.

    The allparts neck on my Paisley is fantastic.
    The vintage fret size is actually vintage and I had it finished by a pro so I'm really happy with it.

    Tommy/USACG were awesome. Miss them dearly. Makes you wonder why the new owners would throw it all away? Like money, goodwill is hard to earn but easy to lose.

    I've been really annoyed by the fact that they dis not gave me any information about my shipment.

    If I did not Ask, I would never known the package was at my post office.

    It was two day close for the package to be sent back in the USA.

    And shipping cost was 80$ I don't how they could miss such an important Thing.

    I stick with either Warmoth or Musikraft depending on how quickly I need the part. Warmoth has a good selection ready to choose from but a limited offering on neck profiles. Musikraft is the best for custom specifications but it takes them a while to get the finished product to you. USA had a great reputation, but I never ordered anything from them. I hope they continue doing good work. Unfortunately, bad word of mouth is a killer, especially in this industry. There are too many alternatives out there now.

    I found this out a month or two ago. I had been in contact with USA Custom Guitar but things were different and after several calls I asked about Tommy and was merely told he was no longer with them. My suspicions went over the roof immediately. Simple questions that I emailed got strange responses, as if the person had no idea what I was requesting. A week or two later I saw they were no longer taking Custom orders.

    USA provided me with an incredible guitar but the experience I've had thus far with whoever bought them has been very disappointing.
