Hi Talk Bass Members.
I recently bought a neck from a distributor in Amsterdam and after the neck arrived, I quickly realized it won't work out on a project and it has nothing to do with the quality of the neck. (I lost count of the frets. The neck pocket was routed for 22 frets. This neck has 20. So I have to sell this one.)
The specs and some photos of this neck from the Amsterdam seller can be found here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Jazz-bass-ma...item19e952525a
And if you can't access the link, please look up item 111288668762 on ebay and the ad will appear.
The neck has a beautiful gloss finish. It has medium jumbo frets. The neck is straight, and the frets are level. The neck has never been installed and has never had the truss rod turned. The rest of the ebay ad says more.
So let me state a couple of more things:
First, the seller told me that the neck is made in China. But is is well done. I have bought 2 other made in china necks (rosewood ones) from this seller before and they all are very well made. Straight and sturdy.
Second, The heel of the neck is the same dimensions as the Fender Jazz necks and yes it fits perfectly in the pocket. You won't go wrong there.
Third, the neck in the ad is not the one I bought. I will do my best to get some photos of the actual neck for you. But rest assured, it's just as nice looking as the one pictured. I guarantee it.
Finally, the only thing I can say is a draw back is that the corners of the inlay routings are not exactly flush to the inlay. If you look at the photos in the ad and gaze carefully at the corners of the inlays, you'll see what I am talking about. They are slightly rounded. But it is only a small cosmetic flaw.
I can't justify returning this to the Amsterdam distributor. They won't refund the $46 shipping I paid to have it shipped and I won't get reimbursed the $37 that USPS will charge me to sent it to them. So for me it's better to sell it here than go through the hassle and expense of a return.
I paid just over $188 for the neck. I'll accept $115 from anyone wanting this neck and that will include the shipping.
I iike paypal.
Please ask any and all questions. But please message me with questions rather than posting them to this ad page. I am much better at checking messages.
