Hello all

Time for a n00bular question:
Judging by videos, build threads and tutorials, necks are carved, filed and sanded by hand.

So how do guitar manufacturers make necks with the same profile? Is there any way apart from CNC routing?

they have computers do it for them. once they put in the exact dimensions that they want the computer, it can control the router and make each neck exactly alike.

Yea. Carvin has a pretty cool video of how they do it. They use a giant table and suction to keep the bodies and necks in place while they rout them.
