    So Mighty Mite necks are cheap. Squier Affinity basses are cheap. Is there much of a difference in quality between the two? Would a Mighty Mite be worth it as a replacement on a cheaper bass?

    I had a MM replacement neck a few years ago. Rosewood board, 1-1/2" wide nut (J width) I had to dress the edges of the fretboard (sharp edges) and it seemed like I had to adj. the truss rod EVERY time I played it (maybe cause it was BRAND NEW??) I had a similar Dimarzio neck on my Antiqua P bass years ago, never had such problems. I'd go for the Sq Affinity just for giggles & Shiites!!

    The MM and the Squire necks are probably made in the same factory.

    Replacement? If the current neck for some reason is unusable and you cannot afford a new bass, I suppose so. Certainly not as an upgrade though. I feel that they would be about comparable in most regards.

    As an alternative though, you could pick up a Fender MiM neck for about $200 new or used with or without hardware depending on what you can find in your area.

    the neck is the most important part of your bass, why not get a good neck if you feel ot needs replacing?
