Are Mighty Mite Necks Better Than MIM Necks?

    I tried to put a Mighty Mite neck on an MIM Precision body last year. The Mighty Mite neck was too wide for the MIM body. It fit fine on a Squier body.

    The quality of the neck seemed fine.

    I, personally, would take an MIM neck over a MightyMite ANY day...

    I had a MIM J bass last year that I upgraded a bunch and I bought a MM neck for it and it didn't fit. I also noticed the neck need a lot of fret work where the MIM neck didn't. Overall it seemed to be pretty nice but the subtleties made the MIM neck a better neck for my bass. I also tried an AllParts neck (the black block maple one like on the Geddy Lee bass) and it wouldn't fit the MIM bass either. The Allparts neck did seem to be better quality then the MM neck based on my personal observation of the two.

    I swapped out the neck on my MIM a couple of months ago. I looked around at Warmoth, MightyMite and Allparts. The mites were dirt cheap and being resold by a lot of people as no-name necks. This combined with a lot of reports of bad fretwork and poor paint jobs steered me away from MightyMite. I feared the Warmoth might be too heavy so I went with a rosewood Allparts neck from http://www.dguitarparts.com/ My guitar guy said that the neck had a good tight fit in the pocket and was the best thing that happened to that bass. The neck feels and plays great.

    FWIW, the neck on my MIM Jazz is amazing, one of the best necks I've ever played :)
