    Not sure if this is the right forum . . .

    Does anyone know where I could get a replacement neck for a five string with a 35" scale? The only ones I can find are 34"

    First thing that comes to my mind is to contact the manufacturer of the bass.

    aren't variax basses 34" scale? if so, you can't just put a 35" scale neck on it. you would need to relocate the bridge to accomodate it as well.

    nevertheless, you might try calling allparts, moses (if you don't mind graphite), usacustomguitars.com

    If the neck was made to replace a 34" neck, the bridge wouldn't have to be relocated

    I put a 35" scale neck from a PV Gbass on a Precison body with the stock neck pocket and didn't have to move the bridge at all, hardly had to intonate it, which surprised the heck out of me.

    Here it is:

    I don't understand why everyone thinks the bridge needs to move. 35" scale on a known body length is no different than a 34" scale on the same body

    What surprised me was that I didn't really have to intonate it.

    you can get really lucky with the neck. If you get a 35 incher with the same amount of frets or one extra it will keep the bridge close to the same spot. close enough that most bridges saddles can move far enough to accomodate.
