Re: scalloping


I would think just about any decent luthier should be able to do a good job. It is a pretty simple thing to do, it is just a long, tedious process.

Re: scalloping


ive done a it, its not hard at all, but nothing beats a machined scalloped neck....warmoth all the way on this one, not a single luthier, ive ever seen has done a job like a warmoth scallop

not any do it yourselfer, nobody, theres no hand scallop that looks or feels as clean as a machined scallop from warmoth, tottal radius control i say!! tottal radius control

Re: scalloping


I thought for Warmoth they can only scallop a neck that you buy from them?
Anyways I found this while looking for 'Malmsteen strat'
http://www.randyciak.com/guitar/services.htm
They do some pretty cool vintage replicas, although I don't really like new guitars made to look used/aged its pretty nice to see an old dented up guitar.

Re: scalloping


A hand scallop feels better than any machine scallop to me at least........................period............... .......just like a hand shaped neck.

I have scalloped necks for the last 15yrs................It's just time consuming is all.
By hand; I can roll the edges of the fingerboard like no machine could ever do.

Yeah, but do you have total radius control?
