Contoured neck heel on Frudua guitars and basses.

To facilitate the reaching of the higher frets on bolt on necks, luthiers and builders developed a variety of solutions called "contoured neck heel". This is obtained by carving the neck heel area on the body side in various different ways and by bolting the neck using four ferrules instead of a neck plate.
