Yes, we thought about it, created it, implemented it and have been doing it for years! 


In 1981, Haywire Custom Shop discovered that it was much more comfortable to play high on the neck with this feature. We simply move the Crest of the heel down the fret board approximately 7/8″ more into the guitar body. You need the Haywire Recessed Heel Crest option when you’re playing at the higher end of the neck past the 12th fret and the bulky heel crest wood blocks your hand. It’s especially critical for those players that play more notes high on the neck! Explore more of your guitar. When your fingers can reach more strings and frets, new ideas will open up for you-a Haywire innovation since 1982……………….

Improved hand access

Faster playing and more room on the neck

Easier and smoother note bending

Less stress on fingering hand

Cleaner, clearer notes

More responsive hand-tapping

Easier sweep arpeggios

Better trills and hammer-ons

Quicker pull-offs on the high extremes

Ordering From Haywire Custom Guitars

If you would like to order this or any other custom guitar, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your guitar needs.

You’ll have “TOTAL ACCESS” to the neck with our Special “Recessed Heel Crest” modification. A Haywire Recessed Heel Joint Option will let you fly all the way up the entire neck with no road blocks to your playing. You will no longer have to alter your technique to continue playing farther up the neck to reach the high notes.
