Warmoth Superwide Neck
Modern Construction


This is about as wide as they can get and still maintain decent string alignment with the pickup pole pieces. As the nut widens, so also does the string spread at the heel of the neck. To make it all work, we have also widened the fretboard over a 16th of an inch on either side . This all results in a normal string to fretboard edge margin over the full length of the neck. Note the snug fit in a standard neck pocket. Also the overhanging fretboard. (See Figure 1)

Standard Features on Modern Tiltback Construction Necks

Modern Tiltback Construction

This is the construction used by all Warmoth tiltback-style headstocks. Features include:

  • Double-expanding truss rod that adjusts at the headstock
  • Unrivaled stability in all climates
  • Modern feel and classic tone
  • Widest range of custom options available anywhere

The Double Expanding Truss Rod


The adjustment nut on Modern Tiltback necks is at the headstock. It is not necessary to remove the neck for adjustment.


The Modern neck uses a double-expanding truss rod, installed in a flat slot directly under the fretboard. This rod floats freely within the neck, with only the backward force that counteracts the pull of the guitar strings being transferred to the wood. All the rod's inward compression is absorbed by rod itself. This makes the neck extremely stable through all climates and seasons (perfect for touring guitarists). It also means Modern necks are much less susceptible to warping over time than single rod necks.


Many custom options such as binding, scallops, or inlay, are only available on Modern construction necks.

The force exerted by the headstock end of the double rod is considerable. There must be a minimum 1/8" of wood below the rod end to prevent wood failure in this area. Thinning a neck beyond factory engineered dimensions is not recommended or covered under warranty.
