The Neck Surgery Kit is priced so that you can 
cover the cost, with the completion of one job.

For the Tech's that have already purchased 
a TechDeck .... the NSK seamlessly slides onto the top platform for very quick setup and execution.

Others have"retro-fit" the NSK for their own shop setup; and used the neck surgery jobs to generate the purchase price of the TechDeck.

Hi Michael !

"I can tell you that, for the past 2 weeks, and in particular the past 4 days, my passion for the TD has grown, exponentially, by the hour !

TECHDECK is truly brilliant in so many ways and a priceless tool for any guitar person, expert or novice !

I've actually used that 'foam' method for years, and always have custom angled blocks done by my local road case guy, that always last for quite a while, before I replace them with new ones...
This way I can quickly find  and return my tools in an instant, and at 71 years of age, every second matters, haha...

As mentioned, I just worked on 12 guits, basses from the Hollywood School Of Rock, that needed TLC, to be up and running properly..."

Forever thankful,
Kindest regards,

Thomas    N o r d e g g
