    Very nice. Intense jealousy here:D

    Couple of things..maybe add an Led in the neck socket by the pickup and also paint the bare wood which shows through.

    An interesting idea, but WAY too impractical.

    That is pretty cool - he doesn't address "relief" -- is the glass built w/ some relief in it already, or is it completely flat? I'm not a physicist, but its not going to flex like wood under tension, will it?

    Nice demo, but now put the other neck back on and play it again, so we can actually hear the difference.

    Dumb IMO. Why would you want a glass neck?

    Probably be stronger than a Les Paul if it falls...

    Stainless frets on a guitar neck that likely won’t be played much, if at all...dumb idea

    LED's on a glass guitar neck....? I hope not. Nice bit of craftsmanship but nowhere resembling practical.

    Darrell makes so much money from YT that he can afford to buy stuff just 'cause he thinks it looks cool. The guitar he has that neck on has Abalone pickup covers. How gaudy is that? And, how are you gonna refret a glass neck when the frets wear out? He's like Phil. He collects guitars, and like Phil has a wall behind him with dozens of them, and probably only plays them on YT.
    I like actually playing all my guitars, not just looking at them hanging on my wall. That's why, when I get too many, I sell the ones that I don't play.

    If it doesn't fit my guitar, can I fill the holes and re-drill?

    It's what I would call a "dancing bear".
    "The marvel is not that the bear dances gracefully, but that the bear dances at all."—Russian proverb​
    Related to that notion is "Just because you can doesn't mean you should".
