Custom Musikraft 1966 Replica Precision Bass Neck
Includes Relic'd Fender RI Reverse Tuners, Tree & Hootenanny Button
I ordered this neck custom to 1966 specs from Musikraft. Then it was finished, relic'd and the hardware relic'd by Mark Jenny (MJT Guitars). It's 100% period correct for '66, but I did order the nut at 1 5/8" because all the Fender '50s and '60s reissue necks have 1 3/4" nuts, and I wanted this to be different than what else is available out there.. and a "B" neck was a custom option in '66 so it's still "correct".. and a little easier to play too (for most).
- Rock maple with curved/laminated rosewood board
- 7.25" Radius
- Med-jumbo frets (first used by Fender in early '66)
- Pearl dots
- Pearl side dots, split 1/2 way between the rosewood and the maple.
- Thin "C" profile - .83 x .92"
- 1964-68 Fender "block" decal
On the back of the neck, I had MJT take the finish down to bare wood, stain it dark grey like old wood looks, and then overspray it with clear coat (like a lot of people do with vintage necks that got played a lot). It looks awesome and feels great too.
The neck is straight as an arrow and the truss rod works perfectly, although I haven't even began to turn it yet because it hasn't been necessary. It had the perfect amount of relief with the GHS Precision flats I was using on it. It's less than a year old. It'll set up and play perfectly with very low action. NO issues whatsoever. The frets have no wear as I only used flats on it, and has maybe 30 hours of playing time on it, if that. I'm selling it because I recently bought a vintage 1961 Precision neck, and just swapped that one onto the body I was using with this neck. NOTE: I also have a set of Gotoh GBR640 lightweight reverse tuners (also relic'd by MJT), which I will swap out with these (pictured) Fender RI tuners at no extra charge. The Gotohs turn a little smoother, they're a little lighter, and they mount flush against the headstock, but I'll give the buyer the choice.
I'm also wiling to sell the neck unloaded for $100 less. Click Here For All The Pics (15)
All in all, I have about $725 into this loaded neck - between the custom Musikraft order, the RI tuners and tree, the custom finish and relicing by MJT (including relicing the hardware), and the '66 repro decal.
