I was looking at the scalloped strat necks at warmoth and all parts and e bay. thought i could save some $$ and get one for a gift for hubby birthday. it's a big one...50..ugh! did i just say that!
He is great at fixing amps and guitars , building pedals..and at first i thought i would get him a plain neck and he can scallop it himself...(he has never done that and you have to start somewhere if you want to try to DIY)
although he has so many projects going on it would be nice to just get one already done ad he can slap it on and play right away!
i was thinking half scalloped although all the ones on e bay are full scalloped.
do people usually go with a full scallop fret board?
Half scalloped is the Blackmore type?
if the scallop is good for lead, and the whole neck is done, does that make it hard to play "regular" ..like an A barr chord, or Bm or open G, A etc..?
Warmoth has so many choices to choose. it looks like they do not have stock scalloped. you have to build your own.
solid maple or with the rosewod or ebony ? is that just for looks or is there a feel thing going on with the choice of neck material.?
ok so lets star this rolling.. opinions please...
oh and BTW..I am feeling better and can use my hands again! yeah...good thing because we have a gig end of Sept..that was scheduled 6 months ago and i have not played more than 1/2 hrs at a time.! now i can practice
