Im going to attempt to make a model of a Dean Razorback
out of clay, but i need to make the neck outta wood, so it doesnt crack n break
cuz..that would be bad

so i was wondering if anyone knew the length and width of the neck on a razor back

any help would be great

I know that the 24-fret Razorback V is 25.5 scale inches long.

Still, why the **** are you building a Dean?

You've made some good posts here Horlicks, but i can't help but feel that your a massive bell-end.


On topic, the standard RBs are LP scale neck wise, but it's the headstock that makes em look huge.

Haha, sry. I was sitting in the hallway waiting for Calc II to start and saw this post. I wanted the TS to see that I know his post is here and I'll respond when I get online.


Anyways the scale length is 24.75" or 25.5" depending on which model you're talking about. To find the length of the neck to the nut, just measure and mark the scale length from the bridge.

To get the taper of the neck, take the string-span at the bridge (2.125") and the nut width (1.625") and center them along the same straight line. Add a little bit to each side of the lengths and draw a line from one point to the other on each side. Here's the shape of the neck looking down on the guitar. Obviously the neck doesn't extend all the way down to the bridge so you will need to mark off where the neck stops on the guitar.

Also the headstocks change slightly from run to run on the Razorbacks. The earlier models have a slightly smaller headstock but not much. I don't have a picture of a Razorback headstock blown to scale, but I've got a Series II Dean headstock and Washburn's version of it
