3 Ways to Customize Your Guitar Neck
By Jake Whylam
Most musicians realize that their instrument is the most important parts of the musical experience. There is not a one-size-fits-all for most instruments, particularly the guitar. Not only does the guitar need to feel right in your hands, but it should also convey the right attitude of your music. A guitar should match the musician's unique style and be reflective of the tone they wish to portray with their music.
While a stock guitar neck can be sufficient for many casual guitarists, those advancing in either interest or talent, may start to yearn for a more customized piece. Fortunately, there are a number of simple ways to customize the guitar neck to add your own personal style.
One of the easiest ways to customize your axe is by changing out or adding a neck plate. There are near limitless options of neck plates that you can choose from, or you can even have one custom designed by a specialty shop. Popular vintage guitars often feature unique and identifiable guitar neck plates, and can be categorized by the specifics of the one on the guitar.
Another option for customizing your guitar is by painting the neck with a custom design. If you are savvy and willing to investigate the proper ways to paint a guitar neck, this is something that you can do on your own. Otherwise, taking the neck to a guitar shop for customization is certainly an alternative. You'll want to make sure the right type of finish is used on your piece, as you won't want problems to occur while you are playing it. Paint is a simple way to add some flare to your otherwise unidentifiable instrument.
The last thing that you can do to ensure you have a truly unique piece is to have the entire neck custom designed and built. A good guitar shop will be able to help you customize, design, and construct your perfect guitar. If you are comfortable with the workings of a guitar, and understand the unique requirements of the specifications, you can give the shop your own design. Otherwise, the professional should be able to help you bring your ideas to fruition.
The custom guitar neck is a great way to have a personalized guitar, add the style you are looking for, and create a piece you can really groove with. The right guitar goes a long way to enhancing your experience as an artist.
