Modern C - Neck Profile Router Bit
Custom Designed & Made Guitar Neck Profile Bit
This is the new replacement for the older Slim C profile bit.
Over the past few years the profile bits have become increasingly popular and the original inception of bits was to give luthiers a bit that would give an approximation of a profile whilst shaping the entire neck, something which could not be achieved with the 3/4" or 1" round overs people were using. However following the development of the Soft V and recently the Wizard profile bits it became clear that a profiled C bit was required and here it is!
Unlike the older Slim C bit - this bit is a specifically design profile bit which is modelled on the Fender Modern C profile. This isn't any old rollover bit - this profile is made up of 5 radii painstakingly mapped to the profile to get as close as possible profile to the Fender Modern C profile. So allowing profiling of the guitar necks to accurate repeatable profiles in seconds not hours!
For best results a jig giving a 0.05"variance between the 1st and 12th fret will give the most accurate Fender style neck.
