In the just out of the box forum I asked a question what on earth lefty's do to adjsut the truss rod on a Warmoth pro neck.  because I was wondering how I was going to get a reverse headstock neck to work. 
Because the W site says Gotoh doesn't make them for left handed guitars and so since a reverse headstock is just a lefty neck with the side dots on the wrong side.... etc you get where I'm going.

Alright then.. tell me if im hallucinating because this looks like a reverse headstock neck that could be put in a righty guitar and have easy access to the side adjust ...


Lookit the pictures.

I'm not quite sure what you're saying...

But the Gotoh side adjust is not available on the opposite side of the heel. That's it.
A reverse, like you said, goes on a right handed guitar normally. The side adjust will be exactly the same.

No. A reverse neck isn't a lefty neck with the dots and the nut reversed. It's a righty neck with the headstock reversed and nothing else. So also the side adjust mechanism would be on the 'right' side of a reverse headstock 'pro' neck.

Unless it' s a reverse headstock lefty neck of course.

We were just talking about this in a different thread. and on the W page it says:

"Unfortunately Gotoh does not offer these mechanisms left handed. Lefty Warmoth "Pro" necks only offer heal adjustments on straight necks, and peg-head adjustments on angled necks. "

LINK

Warmoth says when they construct a reverse headstock.  They'r enot reversing the headstock they're reversing the whole neck and putting the side dots on the wrong side.

But on this guys ebay page its a reverse and/or lefty neck. but when you put it on a right handed guitar it looks like the side adjust is accesible.... even though its a reverse headstock... Thus my confusion.

I suppose I should call about this.

I have a reverse strat Warmoth Pro neck that has the Gotoh side adjustment and it's in the same place as my right handed neck.

and I have no idea why that guy put the Warmoth logo on upside down :dontknow:
