I am thinking of making a bari neck for one of my K71s. The neck on the guitar is written off. I need some adult supervision with getting the particulars straight. I want the bridge to stay in same place, and extend the neck as long as needed , and put on a proper bari scale bolt
I'm not new to this biz, and have a few huge pieces of mahogany that came actually, from the Larrivee factory while it was still in Vancouver.
I know this has been done before, I just need a bit of help with all of it.
Decide on your scale length , plus nut and headstock length minus bridge to pocket .Thats you timber length . The 12th will be where it happens to be . Did you mean "bolt on " when you typed "out on"neck ? I don't know what a K71 is so maybe i'm missing something ?
