Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    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.
