Hello Talkbass, this is my first time posting a thread so I apologize if this is in the wrong section. Anyways, I recently pulled the trigger on a Squire VM Jaguar Special V. I find that it's a very good bass aside from the fact that the neck is made from very cheap tone woods (it dents very easily and was back bowing after one week), and after some shipping issues with UPS the neck has water damage (I got the insurance resolved though). I'm currently looking to replace the neck. Since maple finger boards are my favorite for Fender instruments, I am wondering if anyone knows where I may find a replacement Fender style neck with a maple finger board for under $500 (the bass only cost me $250). Is there a place that sells replacements necks that won't exceed the cost I paid for the Jaguar bass? Is it possible I could fit a third party bass neck (like SX) without any extra work? I appreciate any input people can give me. Thank you!
