IMPORTANT PLEASE READ MANUFACTURER NOTICE BELOW CAREFULLY: All necks require a minor level and polish and may need to be fine-tuned for your instrument. This is perfectly normal and not a defect. Because of the variety of set up preferences out there, we leave that to you. WD contemporary style (22 fret) necks have a double action truss rod which adjusts both front and back bow while the vintage necks use a vintage-correct heel-adjustable single action truss rod which adjusts only 1 way.
All necks should be carefully inspected prior to installation and/or modification as the neck is rendered non-returnable once altered. All wood is considered unique w/ individual growth patterns. Some necks may have minor grain variations due to the organic nature of wood. These are not seconds or "blems". Please contact customer service if you have any questions or concerns about your neck when it arrives. We cannot guarantee exact neck pocket fit due to varying manufacturer tolerances, wood shrinkage or expansion over time etc. Some neck pocket modification may be required.
We recommend that if you are not familiar w/ the proper steps to replace a guitar or bass neck that you should contact a professional for assistance.
