    Hi Jim,

    If a grime gutter for the 642 will fit the Neo I have one that's still new in the box. Some years ago I heard that Yamaha was discontinuing these so I contacted Kurt Witt and ordered 2 of them. They fit my 641 with some modification so thought it wise to get a spare or two and still have one left. I don't have spare inserts though. The P/N is YAC-1671P. Felt inserts P/N is YAC-1672 Ė but don't think they make those anymore either. If interested I think it was about $30 but not sure.

    Let me know and I'll pay shipping.

    I am curious if there's really no grime gutter at all specifically for Neo? I am surprised no one complained and wondering if there's some kind of reason why they decided to not have it, or even to have it be so different from the Custom that it wouldn't fit?

    Jim,

    In the event the gutter Rick has does not fit, I know for a fact my Wessex Dolce came with one that I also use on my Neo. At one time, the Wessex website had them for sale, I no longer see them on the site. Perhaps a reach out to Jonathan to see if they are available as a separate purchase.

    Ooh that's interesting! Can you show a photo of it on the Neo? My friend told me he bought a gutter from Wessex but it did not fit the Neo. So I am curious if there were different versions or something.

    I purchased a gutter from Wessex and it didnít fit my Neo. I should add that they promptly issued me a refund after I returned it.
