Invented and refined through years of fret work for demanding players, the Neck Jig has become a valuable asset in busy repair shops. It's the reason why they're performing more accurate (and more profitable) fret jobs than ever before.
Dan Erlewine developed the Neck Jig from a breakthrough idea: simulate normal string tension when the strings are removed.
Now you can perform your fretting and fingerboard leveling with no unpleasant surprises when the instrument is restrung.
No more guessing: your work is performed under playing conditions, for the most accurate fretting and fingerboard leveling possible.
The Neck Jig's dial indicators, peghead tensioner and peghead jack let you precisely simulate normal string tension, including the effect of the truss rod adjustment inside the neck. You can even tilt the Jig to simulate the effects of the guitar's playing position.
The Neck Jig holds guitar or bass bodies on height-adjustable swivel-top levelers. Heights for popular instruments are conveniently printed on the Jig platform. The Jig includes band clamps, dial indicators, jig rods, peghead tensioner, peghead jack, swivel-top levelers, body support slats, a sturdy ash beam with wooden platform, and illustrated instructions to get you started.
