Hey guys. Glad you like it. ;)

Been a little under the weather, that's why I've been MIA but on the mend.

clarnibass, The posts, mounts and octave lever were from a raw parts lot that I bought a couple years ago. The actual neck tube and tenon were made by your's truly. Fashioned a tapered tube out of brass sheet stock. Bent it with home made bending fixtures and turned a tenon on a lathe. Out of thirty five or so tries I only got four "good" finished tenor pipes and this was one of them. Had better luck with alto pipes as the bend isn't as severe. Wasn't cost effective but fun work overall.

All for now, got to get some more rest. Hope to be around more again soon.

How does someone custom manufacture a neck? How do you know what length, shape, diameter, etc. it should have? I'm guessing probably copying from an existing neck of the same model (or a neck that fits the model)? Did tbone actually make it himself, or designed it and let a special metal shop make it, or...?

Thanks!

Hey Tbone, I gotta an old re-lacqured SML lying around. I'm thinking a full metal jacket theme would be very cool. You game?
How 'bout hot pink and lavender? :D ;) :cool:
