Will I have to pay import duties and taxes ordering from Israel?


US Customers DO NOT pay any import taxes/fees for goods under $1000 coming from Israel. That’s under the US-Israel trade agreement. Rest of the world: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. You can contact us for tips, we have the experience.




What is the wait time for a neck?


Our usual lead time is up to 60 days.




Why are there 6 mounting holes at the heel?


The 4 outer holes are for standard rectangular neck plates. The 2 center holes are for slanted neck plates, found on Deluxe Tele®/Strat® carved neck joints.




Is there a truss rod? What about neck relief?


No Truss rods here. Our necks are milled DEAD straight and then get a very detailed fret job. Which means, the only minimal relief you get is from string tension. That leads us to the next question.




Which string gauges should I use?


In general, these necks benefit from heavy gauge high tension strings. The higher tension creates greater relief which reduces fret buzz, when playing in low action setup. Our minimum gauge recommendations: If you play E to E standard most of the time go with 11's If you play E to E and occasionally drop tune go with 12's If you drop tune most of the time (not in baritone territory) go with 13's If you're in Baritone territory B to B and A to A go with 14's - Baritone set. Please note, these are just recommendations. The most important thing is that you'll feel comfortable. If you've been using 10's forever and that's where you feel at home, don't hesitate to stick with it.




Are the frets part of the neck, milled from the Aluminum billet?


No, the frets are Stainless Steel made by Jescar. Inserted into the neck like in a standard wooden neck.




Can I order a custom neck? For example, with a different headstock design or different scale length?


No, these necks are produced in batches. It's too expensive to prototype and produce a one of a kind Aluminum neck.




Will your necks fit Peavey® T60 and T40 neck pockets?


Not right out of the box. You'll have to modify the body's screws mounting holes. It's been done before by several customers with great success.
