    Really wondering if replacing the neck will give this sucker anymore natural low end ..................

    I own a couple SRs and love them. And I also have a Modulus and am a huge fan of graphite necks. But the cost of putting one on an SR sort of ruins the whole economy of the thing, doesn't it? But I bet it would rock!

    I have an SR1200 and typically run with the mids boosted at 250hz to get some extra warmth/low end..

    I doubt that a new neck will do much tbh.

    * what amp/speaker combination do you have?.. it may be that your rig just doesnt have the ooomph at the low end.. most cabs are rolling off before they hit a B...
    * if you have an fx loop you could use a parametric EQ.
    * you could try raising the neck pup on the low side for more volume
    * have you considered switching the pups to big splits or even fat stacks instead?...

    I would think that a stiffer neck would add more clarity and high end, rather than low end. I could be wrong though.
