    Hi y'all

    I bought an awesome musikraft neck years ago, quartersawn maple, 1" thick all the way, beautiful soft v contour.

    I recently contActed someone there to place another order, and was told no problem, just add all the custom specs when ordering.

    The next day their bass necks were removed from the website, and that there was no timeline for them to offer them again, if anything nothin before the summer.

    Would have been nice to be notified the night before or I would have ordered right away since I'm just starting a new project.

    So back to square one, need to find a custom builder.

    One piece maple so I know usagc is out.

    I like quartersawn maple too, and thick as hell.

    Any recommendations? Companies or private luthiers?

    I live in canada, but family in NYC so easy for me to have stuff shipped there.

    Any help appreciated! Been a while since I posted here.
