Shredneck

The Shredneck Dreadneck is an acoustic-style practice neck which features gold hardware, bronze acoustic strings, a rosewood fingerboard, acoustic-style inlays, and strap knobs. Tuner tips and a gig bag included.

The Shredneck is a small, portable practice tool for guitarists that provides the feel of a guitar, strings and frets. The headstock doubles as the body to provide a "balanced" feel.

Allows guitar players to warm up anytime a guitar is not convenient—in a car, train, plane, at the office, before gigs, between sets, watching TV or in anticipation of playing guitar. Use the Shredneck to work on scales, patterns and techniques, practice chord fingerings and movements along with building and maintaining calluses. The Dreadneck is modeled after the first seven frets of a standard electric guitar but is useful for acoustic guitar players too.

While the Shredneck is strung for right-handed guitarists, it can be easily converted for left-handed players.

Shredneck dreadneck

By Dr. Don Thronburg

from Pine Grove, CA

Comments about Shredneck Dreadneck:

Wonderfully made...great idea...no cigar! Mine did not come with instructions (probably an oversight), but I doubt that it can be tuned to any degree. Even so, it does not handle well, so my suggestion is to purchase an inexpensive 1/2-size, 1/4-size, or child's guitar instead, for just a little more money; or get a used small guitar. I'm sure that Music 123 could help you select something that would be acceptable. Perhaps invent a device that is made like a small guitar, but a body "dummy" so that one could at least simulate a guitar and the balance necessary. If one does not put a strap on this, I quiver to think of what could happen.

Shredneck Dreadneck: Quality Practice Tool

By Kate Austin

from Gray, Maine

Comments about Shredneck Dreadneck:

This product does exactly what it was intended to do. I was impressed wtih the quality and craftsmanship of my Dreadneck...it is definitely a well-made "tool", not a "toy". Although It is not a substitute for practicing with an instrument, it is a useful tool that makes it convenient and easy to fit in valuable practice time. I work in a call center and I am able to use it quietly and comfortably at my desk when call volume is slow. I'm finding practicing scale patterns and chord forms is a much more productive way to spend my "down" time than playing computer games or aimlessly surfing the internet. I recommend this to anyone who is serious about maintaining his/her chops despite a busy or inconvenient schedule.

Love to see a model with room to do picking

By keal

from Maui, HI

Comments about Shredneck Dreadneck:

High quality construction with solid, heavy wood, tuners. Nice glossy finish. Changing strings looks nice and easy, haven't done it yet. I like the tuner covers, the gig bag... just all-around quality. I toss the neck on my desk at work and practice with it whenever I have a little free time here and there. Really helps. By the time I get home I can grab my real guitar and get right to playing what I learned earlier. I also like to practice finger picking and practicing with a pick, which can be done over the frets. While it would be nice to have a little free open space beneath the strings for picking/plucking, I think practicing over the frets makes things easier on a real guitar. 2 things I'd like to see on an upcoming model would be the elimination of maybe the last two frets to give some space for picking/plucking, and maybe adjustable action height (the strings are very close to the frets which is favorable but I sometimes like a little higher action). Very minor suggestions, though. The way the neck is designed, it's a great practice aid!
