    Hi Folks,

    as said above I'm looking for a company as Warmoth for example, where I can buy a neck for my needs.

    Specs:
    - bolt on
    - I can choose the woods for neck and fretboard
    - true 24 frets, no body overlapping stuff
    - 5 string
    - trussrod adjust entrance on the bodyside (very important)

    My plan: chopping off the headstock, to make a headless neck from it.

    Or is there a source for headless bolt on necks?

    Thanx 4 your help, greetz from germany

    Why don't you just have a builder do it to your spec, you can choose the hardware and woods you want, and they can build it to match the head piece.

    Well, I had this idea already - but if you ask a builder in germany, he wants 600, 700, or 800 Euros for it, some even more.
    In the US, if you watch warmoth for example, a neck costs (with chipping, toll and VAT) about 300 euros.
    But the don't have that thing I'm looking for.

    800 euros is a lot, over $1000 US, I wish I still knew the builder who was near Idar Oberstein, he was quite reasonable, but that was 20 years ago that I stayed there...LOL. Currywurst, Kirn'r pils and a lot of wood carvng, was a good time there...LOL
