The neck is a fairly standard 26 ¼" scale (approx 667 mm) and comes fretted with a truss rod already installed under the rosewood fingerboard. The overall length of the fingerboard is 19 1/8" (approx 486mm), the width at the top nut is 1 3/16" (approx 30mm)and at the 22nd fret mark is 1 15/16" (approx 49mm). The tuner holes are drilled and (unusually) the heel has been profiled by us to fit an 11" straight-sided rim at the correct angle for a sensible size bridge. The notch for the tension ring is ¼" wide (approx 6.3mm) by ¾" deep (approx 19mm) and the overall depth of the heel is 2 11/16" (approx 68m).
The neck is fully shaped and has been stained and french polished here in our workshops. The headstock has been stained black with a dark stain on the back of the neck which compliments the black perfectly. The neck has been flatened and waxed which has given a very soft and smooth feel while playing the instrument....This is a very high grade professional finish.
The necks are usually supplied with 2 M6 lag bolts fitted to the heel for fixing to a banjo rim - these are easily removed at need so that the holes can be filled and the heel can be re-drilled for a different kind of fixing.
This is a very useful neck - we use lots of them as replacement necks on vintage banjos where the original neck has failed; fitting a perch pole is quite straightforward (especially if you can pull the original one and re-use it).
