    Hey Everyone,

    I don't really know where to put this thread so moderators feel free to move it. Well anyway, I was wondering how to measure the neck. Do you start at where the neck meets the bass or where neck ends completely. Also where do you finish measuring. Any help would be appreciated.
     
  2. Depends on what measurment you're looking for. If it's scale your after (34", 35") you measure from the nut to the bridge saddles. Otherwise, if for whatever reason you want to know just how long your neck is, it would be from the tip of the headstock to the actual end of the neck! :D
