Neck Removal Jig

Fast, clean dovetail neck joint disassembly! Pushes the neck out gradually and controllably.

Removing a traditional dovetail-jointed guitar neck from the body is tricky business! The Neck Removal Jig (inspired by luthier Bryan Galloup) applies gradual, properly aligned, and controlled pressure to the neck heel. It pushes the neck out, without unnecessary shock.

Made of sturdy cork-lined plywood and aluminum, it mounts over the shoulders of the acoustic guitar; waist clamps adjust to the instrument's contours. Important: Steam should be injected into the joint to soften the old glue, before and during neck removal, through small holes drilled down through the appropriate fret slot (see our Neck Joint Steamer and hose).

The fretboard extension should be loosened with heat and our removal knife. Instructions included.

Don't want to use steam?
Our HeatStick for Neck Removal uses a soldering iron and custom tip to heat the joint and soften the glue. Delicate finishes are spared the damaging effects of hot steam. Combined with the Neck Removal Jig, you now have complete control to gently and safely remove a neck.
