Z-Glide Neck

‚ÄúZ-Glide is likely the first real breakthrough¬†in guitar design in many years.¬†¬†No other company has aggressively addressed the surface feel¬†of guitar necks. For other companies,¬†satin or unfinished necks are the 'solution' and has been for years... but neither satin¬†or unfinished comes close to what the¬†Z-Glide¬†achieves in feel and playability.‚ÄĚ

Turning Conventional Thinking Upside-down...

The conventional thinking is the smoother and glossier the neck, the slicker the feel, but Zelinsky knew the opposite to be true.  Here's a test you can do at home.  Put your hand flat on a glass window and see how well it slides.  Not good...maybe no slip at all.  The Z-Glide's removal of 70% of the surface area plus its strategically designed pattern totally corrects that undesirable feel.


The Z-Glide Reduced Friction Neck (patended) utilizes a surface designed to let your hand glide effortlessly up and down the neck.  Z-Glide necks eliminate the sticky/clammy feeling gloss lacquered necks are known to produce.

Invented by company founder Dean Zelinsky, the revolutionary Z-Glide guitar neck is achieved by precisely engraving a carefully tested pattern into the back of the neck which reduces surface area by 70% and putting a bit of air between you and your guitar...your hand only comes in contact with 30% of the neck.  The Z-Glide was also designed to trap moisture and sweat.  The result is an ultra fast neck with a consistent, silky-smooth feel.

Z-Glide Necks are standard on select Tagliare and StrettaVita models. Dean Zelinsky Private Label Guitars is the ONLY place in the world to get a guitar with a Z-Glide Neck.
