65’ Fender XII Neck Profile

Post by BOA KTF » Tue Sep 15, 2020 8:01 am

I’m building a 6 string tribute to the 65’ Fender XII my Pop’s(Rickie Lee Reynolds) of Black Oak Arkansas has played for over 50 years now. The neck has an amazing feel and I want to get as close to the same profile, I realize the wider heel is pretty much non existent these days. I was hoping some one my already have the profile information or a suggestion of the closest modern build profile. I know it’s a 7.5” Radius and 1 5/8” nut width. I’m leaning towards a Musikraft neck, although I would love to get a custom headstock with the hockey stick smurf cap but 3 inches shorter.
