Better machining would make a better product

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I love StewMac products and have used them for years but, unfortunately, they haven’t produced anything more than a very average product here. They make no outrageous claims as to the machined finish of this piece but I didn’t expect a neck that was only 75% of the way to a finished neck. Maybe that’s the intent …to increase builder flexibility but the dimension margins are just too small. Any serious shaping has to be done with a careful eye on the nut width which is minimal to start with. The headstock is very narrow, narrower than a standard Martin headstock and there is little room for alterations. The machining is somewhat crude. I don’t know what kind of CNC router/shaper the company employs but it does a very rough job of shaping. The first neck I received from SM had to be sent back due to gouges in the carving. The attachment bolts are cheap and they look like screw bolts and nuts one would buy at the local hardware store and they are not the kind of hardware one would put on a fine instrument.

Well shaped mahogany.Stained well and bolted on well.Perfectly cut truss rod channel.You'll need a triple bend truss rod wrench, Item # 6212, to access the truss rod nut. But with this wrench it works like a charm.

the easy part of being in business is selling your product. Follow up and customer service is how you keep people coming back. Stew Mac dose it right. My neck was just tad out of true and they set me new one no problem. Great website and they respond to emails promptly. Good job!
