How will I know if it will fit my 6 string electric guitar? Because of the variations of manufactures, scale lengths, neck widths as well as fret widths. we developed a "one size fits most" product. what we ended up with is a product that should fit 90% the standard 6 string electric guitars out there. we have provided a printable template HERE we highly suggest to print it out to see you how the neck illusions will fit onto the fingerboard before ordering.

if this template does not fit your instrument you will need a CUSTOM CUT OPTION: With this option we REQUIRE that you tell us some information about your instrument. (measuring diagram click here ) Please Note : A small gap 2 mil gap on each side is necessary for UN-obstructed play-ability.

Absolutely ingenious product!
Extremely easy to apply without any tools, staysperfectly in place
and can be removed any time. The fretboard not only looks amazing but also feels a lot more comfortable than the original wooden one.
The staff is also great and replies really fast. The template for my
Fanfret 8 string guitar was finished within a few attempts and fitted

perfectly. I can only recommend buying a couple of these!“

As much as I LOVE playing the JIVA, I still need another guitar for drop-D... that’s where Godzilla, my beautiful S6570Q comes in 💚 Godzilla came to me from my first ever clinic in Japan at Ikebe music.

The rad fretboard makeover is courtesy of the awesomeness that is Neck illusions... Jennifer Batten turned me on to this company a couple months ago and they are KILLER!!
