The neck block has been bonded and fared in as well as laminated with unidirectional carbon fiber. The carbon fiber runs across the grain of the wood which adds strength and stability to the neck joint. The neck block is spread out wide and looks rather large but one must remember that the guitar rim is rounded over - so, the neck block is actually equal to that of an average guitar. But, because it's long and spreads out, I feel, with regards to the guitars tone and performance, the result will be better sustain and feedback control. It should also be noted that the neck block wood is now completely entombed away from the effects of environmental changes. The neck pocket that will later be routed and bonded in is also made with carbon fiber with the strength going across the wood grain - once again to maximize strength and eliminate the chance of the quarter sawn neck block wood from splitting.
Strength, stability, performance and reliability.
