I have several SX basses, and the necks have held out well in all respects for several years. Good wood, good construction, they play well and are easy to set up and work on. I've done fret levels on many and they're comparable with almost anything else I've worked on. Zero complaints.
I have a guitar with a birdseye MM neck and it's no better or worse than any of the SX necks. It's not impossible that they're made in the same factory in China.
If you want a neck to avoid for inferior quality, I'd say to stay away from anything that says Squier Affinity.
