    Only maple/pearl block necks I have seen are on basses, but not on any of the aftermarket suppliers (Warmoth, USACG, etc...). Does anyone make these? Preferable Fender style. I could get USACG to make one for me, I am sure. But wondered if $500-600 was the only way to have it done. Almost be cheaper to buy a new bass for the neck.

    I believe Low End Jazz will do it.

    That's really all I can think of, it's unfortunate there are so few, I'd LOVE to find a P with pearl blocks on a maple neck.

    thanks...I knew there was another one out there. How does the quality stack up to Warmoth and USACG? Just as good? At least better than Fender?

    My KSD Proto-J has one...(that's not my KSD, but mine's identical).
