Some of the links on Guitar Hive are what's know as 'affiliate links.' Here's the detail on what that means.
I started Guitar Hive because, like you, I love guitars. I love playing the guitar, I love listening to the guitar, heck, I love just looking at guitars.
I'm also fascinated by the process of making guitars, and in particular of making them by hand. I wanted to find out more about how guitars are built, and how different builders apply different skills and techniques. And I wanted to share what I learned. That, in a nutshell is what Guitar Hive tries to do.
As with any website, running Guitar Hive incurs costs. There's the tools we use to build it, the hosting of the site itself, and the time and effort we put into it. We attempt to cover some of those costs in a couple of ways. One is by placing adverts on the site. We try to do this as unobtrusively as possible and in a way which doesn't detract from your enjoyment of Guitar Hive.
The other method is by providing links to merchants who compensate us if you decide to buy a product from them or sign up for a service. We only provide affiliate links to companies we know and trust and in whose products we believe. For example, the links to JamPlay are all affiliate links; as a subscriber myself, however, I know how great JamPlay is, and so am more than comfortable recommending it.
Where we feature a product or service we are less comfortable recommending, first of all we tell you exactly why we don't recommend it, and secondly, we don't use an affiliate link.
Providing affiliate links in no way impairs our objectivity. We can, and do, say exactly what we think and believe regardless of the product. And we always will.
If you have any questions about this, or anything else on Guitar Hive, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
All the best,

The guitar neck is the most personal part of the instrument. No wonder it comes in so many shapes and types.

The neck fingerboard radius is one of those seemingly complicated features that's really very easy to understand.
