Restore of A American Neck.

Post by Evil1986Genius » Sun Dec 04, 2016 3:12 pm

This post is for me and others to learn about fixing and restoring a neck so in the end its not as noticable or looks like it never happend. Any tips and tricks and pics can and will help.

Ok a many of u may know i got this neck from dave and in
transit the head stock broke, well moneys tight and not going to be able to send it out to be repaired, so i am going to do it my self. I plan on practicing on a Striker neck b4 i attempt this on my american neck.

So if u have a Stiker neck u would like to trade for a american cast plate or donate to the cause, contact me on my for trade post, PM or FB, it can be broken or not. i'd greatly appricate it.

So this Is the neck i will be restoring, id like to glue the headstock, then strip the neck refinsh the front in black and replace the decal, on the back add some sealer and vintage Amber finsh and then spray some clear so in the end its a invisible repair.

This is the method I used.

But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.
