Neck Shapes

Hi everyone. When I started working on the Rules of Tone, the goal was to build “magic” instruments, and the neck is definitely paramount to that. From the moment you pick up a guitar, the neck should feel very comfortable and strong. This has to do with many factors, including wood choice, wood drying, dimensions, ratios, and our attention to detail. Today, I’d like to focus specifically on neck shapes. We currently offer Pattern, Pattern Thin, and Pattern Regular neck shapes on our Core electric models. These came about through a new method we have to design, program, and cut our necks.

For 2012, the Tonare Grand and Angelus Cutaway PRS Acoustics are available with an adjustable truss rod for those who wish a higher level of adjustability. Private Stock and Collection acoustic instruments continue to incorporate a carbon fiber strength rod.

These photos show the first Angelus Cutaway acoustic with the adjustable truss rod in the spray booth.
