Thanks Pick! I was one of those “I wonder if this will work” ideas I just had to give a try. Would probably look cooler if it was black!

I’m not sure how much rigidity they add to the neck, probably some. It does make it possible to do a neck roundover without tools. Potential for a simple min tools kit guitar. Thanks Kale!

Nice. So these add extra rigidity to the neck and also give it a nice rounded profile. Genius.

You are right Brian! The idea was a neck round over without using the router or a rasp and a boatload of filing and sanding. It feels just fine, but the print time on the two parts is on the long side, so I may not do it again.

Wow, that’s different!!!
