Surrogate Body for the Erlewine Neck Jig

About This Item

Better way to work with bolt-on necks
Attach the Surrogate Body to your Erlewine Neck Jig to work on necks removed from the guitar body. With the body out of the way, you have easy access for fretwork and adjustments.

Heel-access Fender truss rods are so much easier to adjust with the neck off the body. And you can file the highest frets without scratching the guitar. No need for taping off to protect the finish, which is risky on vintage lacquer. The body stays safely in its case as you work.

    Includes:
  • Solid Sipo Mahogany body form
  • Bridges for both guitar and bass
  • Aluminum base and Neck Jig mounting hardware

I bought the neck jig and shop stand some time ago and it has been an AMAZING addition to my shop! Originally, I had stared, scoffed, and scratched my head at why anyone would need the surrogate body and rail. After a very dry winter I. Colorado, all of the fretboards on all 10 of my personal guitars shrank considerably and needed some TLC. Between fret/tang sprout, and the development of the dreaded "hump" in the high register of my F-style basses, I had to turn out several instruments very quickly. So I pulled the trigger, and it has paid for itself already! A very handy addition for fretwork!

That said, I think I found some room for improvement on a couple of small things:. I enjoy the press-fit pocket for the magnet, but the pockets for the neck mounting ferrules are oversized, making mounting necks a bit of a juggling contest not to drop/scatter the ferrules. Same with the pockets for the washers in the mounting pockets. If the tolerances of the holes were tighter, it'd be darn-near perfect! Nothing a bit of help CA glue can't fix for now!
