    I installed the tuners before I realized I'd rather have a slim contour instead of a standard contour, so I can't return it. Not to say the neck is fat, just my preference. Everyone else thinks I'm crazy for wanting to take a loss on it cause it "feels fine to them" but hey, I like what I like B)

    It...is...BRAND...spanking new. had it about a month. Sounds amazing. Looks amazing. The truss rod on this thing is so freaking stable. Never worked with anything like it.

    Cream dots? you know it

    Medium frets? Oh yeah \m/

    Does the $300 include shipping? Why yes it does sir or mam.

    21 frets? YOU KNOW IT HAS 21 FRETS! WHAT?!

    It is a Warmoth made 4 string jazz neck made of Bubinga.

    The tuners were over $50, the neck was (with tax) over $300. Taking a loss cause I want the next thing I'm getting right away and can't afford both. I can probably scrounge up receipts if you like, but you can look on the site and see how easy these things get up to well over the $400 mark with just a few added features.

    MIGHT be open to a trade of another neck, made of dark wood, but I'm pretty set on what I want.

    Edit: Open to trades for heads/cabs

    Thanks for checking out my add gals and guys!

    What's the weight of this neck, please?

    Hmm, I'm not sure. I'll try to post the weight tomorrow when I can get to a scale.

    I can say that I was surprised at how light it was compared to how heavy everyone says Bubinga is. I was thinking "neckdive city". But out of the box it didn't feel any heavier than anything else I'd put my hands on, i.e. maple and normal stuff like that I'd run into with fenders I've had. After the tuners I didn't really notice a difference, but they're pretty light themselves. I am confident I won't purger myself in saying that it itsn't heavy at all.

    Thanks! Yeah its pretty beastly. The mids punch through so well and the Alder balances with it very nicely. Works great with my aggressive plucking style.

    I am assuming it's in one piece, meaning the fretboard it bubinga too?

    I guess I really do need to get this thing on a scale. I'll get that up as soon as I can. It's a bubinga neck, and bubinga fretboard, two separate pieces.
