X20 Artisan Green Custom Neck

Ian was looking for the perfect guitar with the perfect neck profile to suit his hands and playing-style. After many emails and calls back and forward we decided to make the neck profile both slimmer and shallower, reducing the nut width to 1 23/32. It was a subtle, but noticeable difference to overall feel. The scale length was also reduced to 24.9″ to make chord stretches that little bit easier. Bridge spacing was also reduced just by a 1/16th to  2 3/16”. All these details are small, but subtle differences add up to make the guitar fit exactly what Ian wanted.
