There are a lot of terms thrown around the guitar building community when it comes to neck profiles, (which is the actual profile of the neck cross-section). Many luthiers and smaller manufacturers to a lesser extent, will want to know which style neck profile the player desires and match the neck to these specifications.

Some guitar players will prefer the Vintage Profile, which really refers to pre-war (WWII) guitars. Now, with many guitar makers introducing vintage instruments once again, players are demanding more vintage style necks as well. The typical vintage neck has a very pronounced "V" shaped profile, and as a result, the modified V has been introduced, falling somewhere between the vintage "V" and the standard "C" shape.

This free download features (4) different and distinct neck profiles, with sections taken at the 1st fret and the 9th fret, so you can see how the profile changes from these locations. 

Here are the shapes you will receive:

  • "C"
  • Modified "V"
  • Vintage
  • Modern Vintage

Good news for those of you with CNC machines. This free download will also include the .dxf and .dwg files. You can also load these files in most any CAD system and make your own modifications. Just check the CNC checkbox to receive these fills as well.
