What is a Custom Order?

Will B. Hefner Company's neck fit my guitar?
Fender continues to use the same basic dimensions on their guitars that they used when they first started. Many other manufacturers have adopted these same dimensions into some of their own products (Ibanez, Kramer, ESP, Schecter, etc.). B. Hefner Company manufactures it's necks with the same dimensions as Fender. B. Hefner Company also offers a neck to the 3-bolt body, these are made on a per order basis through our custom shop. To check compatibility of non Fender instruments, the simplest method is direct comparison. In lieu of this, the critical dimensions for guitars are: Neck pocket depth 5/8, length 3, and width 2-3/16. Scale length (measure from nut to 12th fret x 2) is 25-1/2, distance from nut to 12th fret, 12 3/4, to the heel (not extended fingerboard) is 18-7/16. Distance from heel to midpoint of bridge saddle adjustment is 7-3/8. Some neck pockets are wider in width usually within a few thousands of an inch, you need to remember that guitars are built of wood and will shrink and grow depending not only on the weather but also on the sanding and paint. B. Hefner is not responsible for the differences and will in no way be held liable for them. We will however ensure a perfect fit if you desire to send in your body for this reason. The heel shape of Strat necks is rounded at the end, Teles are squared. Strat necks will fit Tele bodies but show a gap at the corners. Tele necks may not intonate on a Strat body without neck pocket modification. PLEASE NOTE: All of our necks are supplied without mounting holes drilled. This allows you to perfectly match it to your body.

Is the fret work done?
The leveling, dressing, crowning and polishing does not come standard with our necks. You do however have the option to add fretwork to your order from the drop down menus at an additional cost. The frets are installed and you will have to do some work on the frets if you opt not to have us do the fretwork. Fretwork is done to ensure that the frets are all parallel to one another, this ensures no fret buzz, even with the lowest action. Fret leveling generally needs to be done only in cases of very low action, or on maple fingerboards that are spray finished (to remove the finish), B. Hefner Company does not typically spray lacquer over the frets although it can be done if requested.
