    I'm looking for a really convincing reliced maple neck, for my 54, P project. Most of the ones I've seen out there look fake. Anybody got any recomendations?

    John does great work. I have a 57 RI P bass and it's amazing. I don't know if he has any photos of his relic work but I know he offers it as an option.

    Nice one! This is what I have, I love the body but the neck just looks fake. In a perfect world I'd like to get the neck stripped, Nitroed, and reliced to look right...

    Nice! You might send John a message to see what he would charge. He does do work like that along with his own builds.

    RS Guitarworks, Winchester, Kentucky. They restored my '55 P-bass, and re-fretted, nitro finished, and aged a '69 P-bass neck. Great work and good prices. :D

    I didn't know John does relics. GM restorations here in Canada does beautiful work, Nash's look good too.
