    Recently there was a thread on neck profiles.

    If volunteers would come forward (maybe PM me) to cover the following guitars, and I'll update this list as people come forward

    OK guys - tell ya what - I'll do a video clip tomorrow (edit - now go see first post) and show ya - then I'll note down who can do what. What you will need is one of these profile guages:-
    either a metal one



    or a plastic one like this (cost me Ģ1)




    a scanner to scan in your results,
    some masking tape (optional)
    some black card/paper
    tape measure/scissors.pencil
    a photobucket account or you could e mail the results to me and I'll host them.

    Will try and get back to you tomorrow evening with a vid clip.

    Ok, Iīve got it.
    I donīt own such a instrument, but if I find one in the building center for less money then I take it. Seems to be fun too. + I could measure all my guitars, not only EBMM

    What about taking a piece of solder and bending it to the shape of the neck profile, tracing the outline onto paper, then scanning it into your computer. Of course a profile gauge would be more accurate.

    Here's my Luke. I forgot the measurements woops, will edit those in. Oh and my contour tool is pretty firm it could scratch the neck when pressing hard, so I wrapped a piece of receipt paper around it to protect it.

    wow thatīs great. The V on the LUKE seems to be very soft. I had one in my handy a few months ago and felt the V very clearly, but it seems to be soft.

    Donīt have the tool so far. Maybe today or monday ?!?!

    Also, if I recall correctly, Sterling said at the SLO Open House 2005 that they get the signature artists in the factory every once in a while to re-measure their respective instruments to account for neck wear from playing, etc. This ensures they could pick up any new instrument from a retailer and have it feel the same as their own.

    Correct me if I'm wrong!

    Hey Slingy - thanks for the PMLooks like you're doing fine without me.

    Thanks for volunteering to do the Sub and Sub 4 bass too.

    I think this could be like a post pics of your guitar thread - only this time it's post pics of yer neck countour!!

    I have borrowed a digi cam from my mother in law and have to charge it's battery.

    Will have an instructional vid clip out Sunday evening GMT. (now embedded in first post)

    Also if you are worried about a metal profile guage marking your neck my suggestion is to put some masking tape on it to protect it.
