    Looking to replace my rosewood P bass for a maple (love that look). Should I go for the Mighty Mite ($110) or go for the Warmoth ($350). Is there a huge $200 difference in the quality and is it worth it.

    I haven't heard good things about Mighty Mite's rosewood fingerboards. A lot of people say their maple is good, but I disagree with that as well. I'd go with the warmoth

    I've had both. The Warmoth is worth every penny. Do some study and learn what all their options mean for you.

    Warmoth necks are pretty heavy but, in my experience, very well built.

    I'm sure they are both good so I guess it all depends - I got a MM P rw/maple vintage tint finished neck for that price and it's quite nice. (no issues w/the rw board) If it does't check out just send it back.

    I hate to say it, but I've loved every allparts neck I've found. I have an allparts neck on a tele that is just plain *sweet*.

    I forgot to mention it before; if you're looking to save a few bucks, order your neck through Guitar Center/Musician's Friend when they're having a "15% Off Accessories" sale. I scored a gorgeous Mighty Mite body that way. I ended up paying $161.50 instead of $190, not to mention the free shipping.

    EDIT: Mighty Mite AND Fender necks are available through these online distributors. I should've been more clear.

    Mighty Mite necks are fine, though they usually require some fret work to make them great. Mighty Mite necks are thinner than Warmoth necks, which along with Allparts tend to run a little thicker, so that is something you may want to consider.
