English term or phrase: neck hell
Hi all,

I'm translating a brochure about guitars and it appears "neck hell". I was doing research on it and I found it's a kind of neck but I cannot find it's equivalent in Spanish. Have you ever seen this beofre? Perhaps any of you can play the guitar and can help me!!!

Thanks a lot!

errata: ("neck heel") "zoque / tacón"
Explanation:
Se trata de una de las partes de la guitarra, por donde se conecta el mástil con el resto.

En castellano se llama "zoque", aunque hay gente que le llama "tacón" ("heel") o "tacón del mástil", mientras que otros parece que los distinguen como partes diferentes.

Por ese motivo yo escogería "tacón", que parece más usado.
