Fender/Charvel Question?

Postby clutch73 » Mon Mar 26, 2007 6:17 am

Does anybody know the neck radius on Jake's number one? I'm assuming it is 7 1/4 like all the fender necks made at the time...Thanks! Just curious.

i'm not so sure about that.

rumour has it that the neck was shaved down
by the guy at Charvel who also painted it.

I've read the same thing too???! I'm sure someone has some information about the neck radius of that guitar. What was it on his ESP model? 12"?

Not sure yet. Don't know if I have the skill, tools, or knowledge to put one together. I'd love to though, one of these days. I own a strat with a 7 1/4 radius, and if I were to build one of my own I would go with a flatter radius. So, I was just curious, and thought I ask. Everyone here seems to know alot about Lee's Whitey.
