    I have an old samick, but it was a gift from my brother, so I cannot sell it to you.

    In terms of necks, they had a slightly smaller neck pocket to a fender, so if you buy a fender replacement neck, you might be able to make the neck pocket slightly larger and then fit it in. I managed to force on in, but I did some cracks to the finish :rollno:

    Best of luck mate

    PS: got any photos of the neck?

    If the truss rod nut has a stripped/circular hole where an allen key used to fit... all you need to do is buy a screw extractor of the right size to back-out the stripped truss rod nut.

    I've had success with this method on two basses.

    Screw extractors require "no-grip"... that's why they work. You would normally have to first drill a clean "no grip" hole into which you would insert the screw extractor. Someone has already done this for you by stripping out the truss rod nut hole. Screw extractors are available at any decent auto part store for under $10. Google it and you'll see why. They are used to remove much tougher items than stripped truss-rod nuts.
