There are so many little parts on an electric guitar that when you’re a beginner it can be a daunting task to figure out what each part is for! It never hurts to take a closer look at anything, so why not dive into the anatomy of an electric guitar?
There are three things worth mentioning when it comes to the neck itself: How is the neck-to-body connection made? What is the construction method of the neck shaft? And how does the neck shaft transition to the headstock?
Last time I installed the neck of my Telecaster project, but no single piece of hardware was attached. The time has come to take a crack at the tuners. It’s in my opinion that the best way to install the tuners as the first piece of hardware. That way you can loosely fix some (old) strings to the bridge and move it around to get the best spacing possible.
