For the neck, I wanted something special.
I could go on eBay again and try to get a good neck there, but some how I really don’t like the necks listed there.
I do like the Fender Road Worn “60 necks for looks, but I have been told that those necks are really terrible.
So because of this, I got on the Warmoth website and set an order there for a custom neck.
The neck is a Total Vintage construction type neck, with a 7 ¼” radius playing surface.
Full maple neck and fretboard, Back Contour is the Standard Thin like all original Fender American standards Telecasters, 21/6230 frets because I wanted some small and low frets.
The inlay Dots are Abalone, like the original Richie Kotzen Fender necks, with a White Corian nut.
The headstock as the vintage style tuner holes and the total finish for this neck is a Satin Finish, for a faster and slicker feel.
For the Decals, I did get on eBay again and found someone who could print those waterslide decals, since I wanted to add a custom Richie Kotzen Signature to the neck, like my custom Ibanez RK-1 Richie Kotzen Guitar.
At the front there is this Fender “Telecaster” Richie Kotzen Decal, which looks amazing and at the back you’ll find the Fender Custom Shop Decal and serial number.
