Hello, Just wondering if anyone would know where to source a neckblock for an old taylor 110 from 2003. The block has practically disintegrated and needs to be replaced.
I have removed it but I'm not sure if I'm capable of making a replacement that would fit snugly and be of the same standard as the original. The guitar belongs to a friend who wants to pass it on to his young daughter so I would like to try to help.

I dont see anyway to attach pics here -?

Hoping someone might be able to suggest a solution as Taylor have informed me that they no longer supply blocks from that period.

Many Thanks
Rusty

"I have removed it but I'm not sure if I'm capable of making a replacement that would fit snugly and be of the same standard as the original."

The only difficult dimension is the height - between the top and and the bottom. If you even could order one from the factory, you would still need to trim that height. This is a straightforward piece to make, and my guess is you could be off a bunch in the width and the depth without affecting anything. And you have the advantage of having the old piece in your hand to match.

Thanks to everyone who replied
Just a quick question about posting pics here--is there something I am doing wrong as I see at the bottom of my page it shows that posting attachements is disabled but I did not choose that as far as I know.
Cheers
Rusty
