Customer Supplied Neck Wood

Birkonium is happy to work with customer supplied neck wood.  Please keep in mind the following conditions for working with customer supplied wood.

  • Supplying your own wood reduces the neck cost by $30/neck
  • When making necks, we begin with a single rectangular blank that yields two finished necks.  You must order a minimum of two necks when using non-Birkonium supplied wood.  We can not work with rough neck shaped blanks at this time.
  • If you’re supplying a laminated blank, it’s essential that the face that’s perpendicular to the joint is absolutely square! if not, the seam will not end up in the middle of the neck when it’s cut
  • Those two necks do not necessarily need to be the same specification
  • Realize that knots and other unknowns may lie underneath the surface you can see. These may expose themselves once the neck is machined
  • For most standard scaled necks, a 24″x4″x3″ blank is the correct size for a 14th fret neck.  The neck billet should be supplied slightly oversized so that it’s 4×3 once it’s squared up.
  • We can make a headstock wider than 3″ if you supply wood wider than 3 “.  Please specify the width of the headstock in the notes section when filling out our Neck Specification Form
