For bolting a neck onto a contoured solidbody when a flat neck attachment plate is impractical.

5/8"-diameter counterbored holes required. Supplied in packages of 12.

Mounting screws sold separately.

We recommend using a 5/8" diameter Fisch Forstner Bit, or brad-point drill bit to recess these neck bolt ferrules to 3/16" standard depth (this may vary according to instrument design). The suggested 5/8" diameter is slightly oversize to allow for finish thickness in the recess. Use a 15mm bit if you plan to fit the ferrule with no finish in the recess.

Goodbye neck plates

By Pacific North Coast Guitars from Washington USA
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, April 01, 2014

For any builders that use any kind of bolt neck joint thats not a square, these are perfect. I like them better than plates personally cause you aren't held to the screw placement of a traditional plate. And if you want 5 or 6 screw in the neck then go right ahead. Just use a good forstner bit for cutting the hole. A drop of glue and press them in. Ready to go.

For that professional touch.

These ferrules are sized perfectly and look great.

Tight fit problem

By HarVette from Kennewick, WA

If you use too much lacquer, the ferrules are too tight. Heat with a soldering iron, and press in with a wood dowel. Just be careful not to overheat. They will fit perfectly. If you need to remove them, I chuck up a 1/4" screw remover and spin the ferrules right out without any chipping.

Excellent little thing

work like a charm

I was trying to set the neck on the 'bird as far out as possible, and these ferrules bought me about 3/4" over a standard neck plate, and also installed neat and flush. Definitely use a Forstner bit.

Works well

I used a 15 mm Brad drill and in they go. nice snug fit and look great as well. As you get 12 in the pack I will continue to use these ferrules.

Neck Mounting Ferrules

By Ron M. from Chicago, Il.
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, February 27, 2012

Well made, quality product. Its a small and basic item but obviously well made. Every detail matters when I make my guitars. No matter how small the parts is, its got to be perfect and this ferrule is.

very slick appearance to a finished bolt on.

Nice Little Pieces

By MarkWarner from Norman, OK
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, March 16, 2011

These are nice little pieces, but they are not 5/8" in diameter. A 15mm Forster is the way to go for a nice tight fit.
