Wbs Guitar/bass Neck Joint System Kit Project Diy L@@k Free Freight For Sale
for 11/2012 Vintage Guitar New Products Review
NEW PRODUCT ROLL-OUT An Buyer's Exclusive
After 5 years of Research and Development, along with over 30 years of Guitar Playing Experience, We are pleased to introduce The WBS(Wood Brass and Steel) Guitar/Bass Neck System.
We all can agree that since the inception of the Bolt-On Guitar Neck concept, the weak link has been the fasteners and the Neck Joint itself. Either the Body Cavity was not exactly a clean surface on which to introduce the companion Neck, or ambient environmental conditions compromise the stability of this union. Causing an unstable union of Neck and Body. Either condition can be crucial to your Guitar or Bass' playability and ultimately your tone.
Whether your seeking a stronger or a more stable neck/body joint or you wish to perform a repair on a broken or stripped fastener on your DIY Project, The WBS Neck System is for you.
On average a Stringed Musical Instrument may have in excess of 700lbs or downward pressure on the neck/body union. In the case of the traditional Bolt-on application, the screws may strip or corrode becoming unusable. Therefore rendering your instrument unplayable. The Stronger the Neck/Body union is, the more stable the acoustical properties become.
Danny Gatton always said, "If a Telecaster sounds good acoustically, it will most likely sound great when plugged in". Well Danny was absolutely correct. For over 5 years I experimented with several different configurations on aTelecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass and a Ibanez Jem. Seeking the system that would fulfill my criteria of Function, Durability, Sonic Improvement, Serviceability and Ease of Installation. This system was the winner hands down.
Soon after installing the WBS Neck/Joint System on one of my "Player Grade" Telecasters, I noticed an immediate improvement in the string tension and tone. Being an aggressive player, I'm forever bending the neck and strings and my instruments required and "Tune-up" every month or so. Turning the stock Neck Screws had become a leap of faith. Hoping not to either break the screw itself or strip it out completely. With this system there is a vast improvement in surface contact vs. stock wood screws.
For over 2 years I have had this installed in my Main "Player" guitar, I find myself less apt to concern myself with in-between sets tune ups and intonation issues overall. With Tremelo installed Guitars, the flex that may occur while using your Floyd Rose of Stock Stratocaster Tremelo Block is greatly reduced, thereby returning to pitch more often than not.
Each kit includes 4) Stainless Steel Machine 4) Brass 1) Detailed Step-by-Step Instruction If you do not feel comfortable installing the WBS Neck Joint System yourself, Please contact us for a WBS Installation Quote. (860)983-2577

Hey, I received and installed the "system" today. I am just completing a total rebuild/mod job on an Epiphone Nighthawk, the refinishing made the neck a little thin and I was having tuning stability issues. Your product made a HUGE difference. I will be buying more for my next project and will recommend your system to every bolt on customer I get. Thanks for the fast S&H, positive response has been entered. Mike
As of 02-18-2011. All International Buyers will no longer receiving a complimentary set of WBS in addition to their initial purchase. This action was in responce to 's high cost of international freight charged to customers. This error was 's issue, and not WBS's. There will be no refunds or adjustments to previously sold kits to International Buyers.
Also as of 02-18-2011 All sets Sold will include a Installation Tool as well as enhanced instructions, as a direct result of user's input. So version 2.0 will be sold from here on out. Thanks for everyone's valuable input. We truly listen to any and all input forwarded. Also as a direct result of the enhanced and improved version, I must increase the Price by $1.00.. $15.95 is still a bargain for the benefits of this product. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
