    I just acquired a MIA P neck that is in excellent shape,but its fretless(and missing the tuners). Would it be cost effective for me to have frets put in this neck,or should I just get a neck already done(from Warmoth,etc....)

    Thanks:cool:

    Much easier to just get the warmouth. IMO anyway...

    Is it lined?
     
  4. Do MIA's come with lined fretboards :confused:

    Either way, a fretjob around my neck of the woods is $180+ and those kind of beans could get a nice Warmoth. Shoot, maple/maple necks start at $147.

    But necks without dot markers are really appealing to me. :D
