Our Vintage/Modern neck combines traditional neck design with modern refinements for improved playability and convenience. There is no finer neck of this type on the market. Features include:
- Single-style truss rod that adjusts at headstock
- One piece maple necks, two piece mixed-wood necks
- Walnut skunk stripe
- Warm vintage tone
The Single-style Truss Rod
The adjustment nut on Vintage/Modern necks is accessible at the headstock. Neck removal is not necessary for adjustment.
The Vintage/Modern neck uses a single truss rod design. The rod is held within a concave channel and anchored to the wood at each end. As the adjustment nut is tightened the neck wood absorbs both the backward force that counteracts the pull of the guitar strings and the inward compression exerted by the rod. Necks that use a single-rod design typically need seasonal adjustment, and are slightly more susceptible to warping over time than double-rod designs.
Vintage/Modern is the Warmoth neck construction type most similar to Fender's modern Strat® and Tele® neck construction. It is available in 25-1/2" scale only.
