Guitar neck shaving is  just what you need for a more comfortable grip on your guitar.

If you have a guitar neck that you just love but it’s a bit too thick–we’ll shave it for you.  

Whether it’s a Stratocaster, Telecaster, PRS, Les Paul or your favorite Bass guitar,  just one day on our bench….. then back to your door the next day will get your favorite guitar neck shaved to a thickness more comfortable for you. The Haywire Custom Guitars neck shaving service is here. Guitar neck shaving at Haywire Custom Guitars may improve comfort on your favorite guitar neck. A fat, big or large profile neck can feel cumbersome for a few guitar players who prefer a more delicate and slimmer feel. Agile players with smaller hands may require less wood to get around the guitar neck more quickly. Closer action and less wood in your hand can be less of an impediment to your best playing speed.

 We’ll also replace the finish on the back to help preserve the wood and keep it smooth and beautiful.
 Neck tone is an issue that no empirical evidence has ever put to rest. However, comfort  does affect your playing ability and technique which is what matters most in finding and maintaining your tone. Start with finding a neck that makes playing a joy and enhances your technique in a way that allows you to play your best, then: Find the best amp that suits your ear for the tone you like. However other factors to consider are pickups, effects, speaker enclosures, volume, venue, room size, string gauge, etc.

Guitar Neck Shaving: What is your preference, a thin neck or thick neck ?

Neck thickness should be chosen for what best fits your hands, not the “tone” it has.  That should be the major consideration in the choice of your new neck. The timbre of a fat neck is noticeable. However, most of the tone comes from your playing technique-not the wood.
On an electric guitar  tones are affected by everything from the pickups and amplification to pedals, pickups to speaker enclosures.
In a live situation “wood tones”  in an electric guitar will become even less noticeable.  Let’s say everything is equal and the guitar is perfectly in tune and intoned.  The overall sound of your guitar may be noticeably affected by a fatter/ thicker neck but generally only when you are playing without the guitar plugged in to an amp.  So…remember high gain electric guitar tone is very much dependent on a players technique and comfort with his instrument and not the thickness of a neck.
