    This is the vessel of all pro luthier knowledge

    Does anyone know of anyone providing CNC services on limited runs? Preferably a company with experience in necks.

    I have an idea for a simple spin on a tried & true old favorite. It needs to come in at a reasonable price point to make it a viable project.

    thanks

    USACG will produce bodies and necks for you...not sure about their price point and/or minimum numbers limitations...

    USACG doesn't do custom CNC work, at least not last time I checked.

    All of their programming was done by Andy Artz, and he runs his own firm now, Best Guitar Parts.

    BGP does all of the CNC milling and woodwork for quite a few high profile builders.

    They are VERY busy right now getting ready for NAMM.

    Give Seth a call and tell him Brad Lowe referred you on.
