    I was wondering if anyone has tried one of those import bass necks off ebay? If so how was the quality and what about the duty/customs fees that come with it. They say you have to pay that your self but I have not found a way to know how much the duty/customs fees will be. Let me know if anyone has baught one and what it really cost to get.

    I would not want to buy one of these to only pay some crazy amount more for the duty/customs fee, when I could get something from here (USA) and only pay normal shipping.

    The one I bought a few years ago wasn't exactly plug and play. I wouldn't go that route again. Fender is selling real necks and bodies now though. that should idiot proof the process. The ones on eBay are a roll of the dice.

    Why when you can get a mighty mite or a warmoth or even real fender parts these days?

    There's too many other "safer" name-brand choices. Fender, Warmoth, USACG, even the relatively inexpensive Mighty-Mite ones are pretty good.

    Don't gamble with a neck. Get the best one you can afford, it's the heart and soul of the instrument.
