    Where did you find the conversation necks? I keep finding 28" scale baritone necks but not much for true bass vi conversion necks. Really looking forward to this!

    A guy somewhere in Texas sells them on ebay.
    Seller's handle is d_42. His name is DC Kunkle. Search for something like "30.25 inch Bass VI conversion neck". The guy is great to deal with.

    Ironically, I found him from a thread on TDPRI where his one and only disgruntled customer won't shut up about him but ton's of people responded that they had a good experience. DC probably gets driven up in the search results more from "that guy" than all of the good reviews put together.

    Edit - Warning - do not search DC's handle D_42 unless you wish to be inundated with pictures of ladies plus size undergarments. Don't ask me how I know this.

    Thanks! I've read a lot about them and have been looking for one with no luck. I just emailed him on eBay to see if there are more available. He actually has a 4 string version on there now.

    He custom builds and just uses ebay as the sales channel. I contacted him to say what I wanted and he posted an auction. Just hit [buy it now] and pay, then he'll get started.
