    I want an aluminum neck, but I don't know where to get one. Does anyone know if I could get one online? I havn't had any luck with ebay. I want one to put on my MIM Jazz, I don't know why. Becuase I want to have a Jazz with a aluminum neck, okay? Would it just bolt on, or what?

    There's a reason you don't find one. They feel like sh!t. Always cold to the touch, no matter what you do to them.

    Get a Moses graphite neck if you want. Or buy a 2nd-hand Kramer/Travis Bean.

    I rather like the cold feel, it feels pleasant to my little clamy hands. I was playing a used kramer, and I absolutley loved the neck. It was so comfortable, and sounded great. And I like the dark look of aluminum necks.

    Moses necks look good, except are quite pricey at 395! I could of picked up the Kramer for that price ;P
     
  4. I've played a Kramer for the past 21 years, and I couldn't care less about a cold feel. After a minute or two of playing, the coldness is gone.
