For as little effort as it is I don’t know why you wouldn’t put carbon in a neck.

Interesting that they only use reinforcement rods at the upper end of the neck. That's where I would have thought, being a little thicker and closer to the body, it would have been more stable?

The neck on this is very stable and straight. :)

A tension force always provides the greatest displacement at the center though, assuming relatively uniform stability throughout the length of the material having the force applied to it. My necks that develop bows in them always seems to occur at its worst around about 7th-12th frets.

I took my 97 US deluxe jazz 5 to Brian West here in Adelaide. Amazing how little needs to be taken off to change the whole feel of the neck. It's a player so not fussed about keeping it original. It was the slowest most uncomfortable neck prior and I only realised how bad it was after playing it live on a four hour show. I doubt it hurts the resale value as it is a pro job but I can't see myself selling it now anyway!

The only reason I am thinking of doing it is because I plan to keep it.
