Since I'm rather new at this I'm not sure excatly how to phrase it, I hope I'm not offfending anyone. Saw this 50's Kay for sale that has a new neck. The new neck was installed after the original neck was shattered in a bizarre gardening accident seriously, the neck was basically broke into two pieces. A new neck was installed by John Phillips of World Of Strings In Long Beach. I'm going to check it out with my teacher sometimes this weekend. I was wondering if the luthiers that post here (or anyone else really) could bring some light on this neck situation. I know that in the electric world a neck makes a huge difference but since we're talking about an acoustic instrument where the body is a huge part of the sound, where does the neck "fit" in the equation? Thank you all for taking the time.
