    I wonder what is the best replacement neck for an FEnder P-Bass, im gonna build an Precision bass with maple neck and Maple Fretboard and its kinda important for me to have an skunk stripe on it to.. :p

    I have Been looking at Warmoths, but i found an neck on www.stewmac.com ,that met my demands, i wonder how goods their neck is, if anyone have it,or have tried an bass with it on? (i think they have Mightymite necks, but im not sure if they make their own...)

    Warmoth > All
     

  3. Warmoth=$$$x1,000.

    Try Mighty Might, or Allparts if you need something cheaper.

    Warmoth necks kill! They are awesome. I've got four of them and they're great.

    "Fine" the error? How about "find" the error, since we're looking...

    Thank you, Mr. Spelling Commissioner.
     
  9. I have both a Warmoth and an Allparts necks. The Warmoth is a standard Jazz neck. Great truss adjustment, no twisting, great action.
    The Allparts neck is a 70's block inlay style. Again,.... great truss adjustment and no twisting but, I think the action can get lower on the allparts neck.
    I heard, I think on this site, that the Allparts had less wood routed from the trussrod area, thus giving you a better tone. I have to agree. To my ears, the Allparts neck is warmer in tone.
    Hope my opinion helps.
    Cheers,
    Hawk

    Give EddieTheKiller some slack, he's from Norway.
    Our TB brothers and sisters from foriegn lands have a different perspective of are language, this will cause grammer issues. If I can understand what EddieTheKiller is saying, then that is good enough for me.
