Guitar Necks Explained – Tech Tips #4

by | October 4, 2019

This week Joe and Gareth breakdown guitar necks for us and explain all the different shapes and sizes available. From the slimmer C and D shapes to the chunkier U and V shapes. Joe and Gareth cover all types and describe how the different profiles of a guitar neck affect the overall feel. They even go into compound guitar necks and how they change shape from one end to the other.

Guitar necks don’t generally have a massive effect on the sound of the guitar, but they do affect the feel. This is pretty significant because how the guitar feels will impact how you play, and that will affect the sound. So, it’s important to understand the different shapes and profiles available. We recommend trying a range of guitars and finding out about their neck profiles to learn which shapes you prefer.
