In performing a 4-axis alignment of the guitar neck your new guitar neck will be checked and adjusted to be true and straight to ensure proper alignment on all 4 axis. This step almost always ensures proper action and allows for more accurate and easier guitar tuning and playing. A full set-up will then be performed in the following steps.
We level and polish the frets to insure that all of the guitar frets are level, eliminating any possibility of fret buzz due to unevenness.
Next, we radius the guitar strings. Since, most guitar necks have a curved contour over the top of the neck called the radius. We adjust the strings to make sure the height of each string perfectly follows the contour of your guitar neck. Because, once we determine the contour and then set the radius of the guitar strings, it’s time to adjust the overall height of the strings from the top of the frets to the bottom of the guitar strings accurately.

In addition, we can re-check the overall guitar string height and the action all while maintaining the radius just created. The truss rod adjustment is then able to be made here. The strings will be parallel all the way down the fret board and neck straight.
Finally, we set the guitar intonation. This step is done twice. The intonation is set two times with a 24 hour “seat-in” period in between to allow the guitar to properly re-seat and settle in with the new adjustments.

Picking Your Ideal Neck
Neck thickness should be chosen for what best fits your hands, therefore not the “tone” it has. That should be the major consideration in the choice of your new neck. The timbre of a fat neck is noticeable however, most of the tone comes from your playing technique-not the wood. Furthermore, on an electric guitar tones are affected by everything from the pickups and amplification to pedals, picks, string gauge and speaker enclosures.
