This Guitar Neck Fingerboard Radius is 12"
The fingerboard, or playing surface of the guitar neck, is usually
curved or radiused across its width. The purpose of this radius is to
accommodate the natural ergonomic shape of your fingers when they are in
playing position. Comfort is certainly a major factor in selecting a
fingerboard radius but it is not the only factor. Musical Style... the
fingerboard radius must also allow you to play the style of music you

1. The 4-axis Alignment of the guitar neck. Each guitar neck is checked and adjusted to insure that it is true and straight to insure proper alignment on all axis. This step insures proper action and allows for more accurate and easier guitar tuning, playing and set-up in the following steps.
2. Inspect and Lube the guitar tuning gears. Before installing the guitar tuning gears, each one is checked thoroughly. Each tuning gear is adjusted so that there is no play in the mechanism. They are then lubricated to insure smooth and even movement to make your guitar tune accurately.
3. Potting the guitar pickups-We dip the pickups in hot wax to reduce squeal and unwanted guitar feedback
4. Prep the guitar body-Before installing the guitar electronic components, great care is taken to insure that all wires are properly routed, spaced, and grounded to insure years of trouble free service with your guitar.
5. Level and polish the frets-This insures that all of the guitar frets are level, eliminating any possibility of fret buzz due to unevenness.
6. Radius the guitar strings-Most guitar necks have a contour over the top of the neck. We adjust the strings to make sure that height of each string follows the contour of the guitar neck.
7. Adjusting the overall guitar string height and the action.Once we set the contour and radius of the guitar strings,then to adjust the overall height of the strings from the top of the frets to the bottom of the guitar strings.
8. Set the guitar intonation-This step is done twice. The intonation is set two times with a 24 hour seat-in period in between to allow the guitar to properly re-seat to the new adjustments.
of the main functions of a Custom Guitar Shop should be to hit the
target the first time by building as close to a perfect instrument as
At Haywire our aim is getting better every day! The
job is only complete when you are completely happy with your guitar
because you'll use it every day. It needs to be comfortable and
light-weight enough to play for hours at a time in any situation without
The sound has to be clear and tone-great. It has to
be built to withstand the rigors of being on the road whether touring or
playing in local venues. It has to feel good to you when you play it.
The action and feel need to be consistent all the way down the neck so
you won't be forced to alter your playing technique as you travel around
on the fret board. A guitar players instrument needs to be in tune on
every fret so we pay careful attention to the intonation settings.
It has to look good for you and represent your sense of style. The
finish has to last for a long time to protect the wood from absorbing
moisture from the atmosphere as well as sweat from direct contact with
hard working hands.
The neck needs to have a truss rod that is
easy to adjust for seasonal variations in temperature as well as the
ability to transmit sound and add extra sustain for players. Strings
added need to be a comfortable gauge without too much resistance thus
making it easier to push down to the crown of the frets.
These are just some of
the things that we think about every day to make sure we get it exactly
right for guitar players who need a great instrument for their
passion-PLAYING GUITAR!! We're building satisfied players..... One
Haywire Guitar at a time!!
