Neck Scale Clarity

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by PIZZAcato, May 7, 2006.

  1. Hi, I was just wondering what scale of neck is best for clarity... as in clean/clear sound, if you know what I mean (i cant really describe it any better). For example... Lakland advertises a "piano like quality" and I think they use a 35". Thanks.

    P.S. Just to make sure you know what the question is, I'm asking what scale(inches or w/e) of neck is best for clarity.

    I don't really think that the neck dimensions have that much to do with clarity.

    After technique. the greatest factors probably are pup choice and amplfier limitations.

    A lot of the aftermarket pup makers give a pretty accurate description of the sound to expect with different model choices. If you find a description of the sound that you want, post in the pickup forum and ask if anyone is using that particular pup.

    You can get "bell like" tones easier with a pick than with your fingers, generally.
