24 fret neck

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Kraig99, Jul 19, 2002.

  1. Does anybody know where I can purchase a relatively cheap 24 fret four string bass neck? Does anybody know of someone who will make these custom for a low price? Thanks in advance. . .
  2. I should have clarified this, but I need one that is actually made to fit into a 24 fret body, not just a normal Fender style neck with an extension.

    Well, what kind of bass is it?

    I'd recommend finding a local luthier and asking him to fit a new neck on it.

    But I don't think it's worthwhile for a cheap bass, better get a new one.
  4. Anything custom will not be cheap. The low end Yamahas go for about $400 or so and feel and sound fender like. They also have 24 fret necks.A neck might be $200 or more. And it probably will not come with a nut. That's another $50 or so, unless you can install and cut it yourself. Think carefully. Good luck.
