    And in the meantime I'll just keep making do with the trusty ol' F65ce with its garishly long and blinged-up neck.
    :glee:



    Needs v-block inlays and a G-shield.

    Right, but Chris Cozad also explained they can result simply from humidity expansion/contraction of the heelblock: Heel block swells, lifts up that section of the top because it's glued to it.
    Yes...

    Realizing you may have missed what my real desire is:
    I want an F40 body with a 24-3/4" scale neck (as on early F45/65ce's) with a 1-11/6 nut. (Never spec'd anywhere I've seen, on F40 outline)....

    Yes you did... and '74 as a cut-off date for no more flatbacks is probably accurate, in fact it's what Hans reports as the introduction date for archbacks in "the Book", but he discovered...

    To nail down the build era/location for the OP, that'd be the '70's Westerly G312 you inquired about recently, wondering about the neckset style?
    In any case, sounds like it's still right there in...

    Well according to that article they're being more than replaced by a younger one, and I also seem to recall that was just US demand and sales, because it was another detail that went counter to the...

    I guess I'm just lucky with my 43 year-old D-25M, it's got about a million miles on it and still no need for a neck reset.[/QUOTE]

    Yeah we've debated that a few times over the years.

    I know Seger and the Nuge didn't really hit it big until later in the '70's but by golly both of 'em were solidly touring in the late '60's, just hadn't had the big hits yet.

    And nobody ever talks about what kind of guitar he used to play "Blackbird", it was just one of those songs everybody tried out on a flattop before it was superceded by "Over the Hills and Far Away"...
