Re: How to fix N?eck Heavy Guitars? V & SG, etc
It's funny you said you were building a guitar and moving the strap button. I read once where I think it was Jackson guitars site back a long, long time ago showed a custom model firebird Jackson guitar that was used by the then Rat guitarists. Anyway, the caption read "As it should have been built". It was a reverse headstock model, but someone told me once that they moved the strap button and it wasn't neck heavy, and I guess the gibson's were known to be, especially with the firebird model..
I've thought about building a neck thru V because I love V's and I want the guitar to of course not be neck heavy. So, I'm trying to figure out what wood to use, etc,. I'm going to try to use a heavy body wood like Mahogany probably and maple neck, etc, but a thin neck, which I wanted anyway..
