    So, I built a fenderbird. I have the epiphone gothic neck laying around and I need a project. What epiphone basses does this neck fit? EB3? I'd hate to let it go to waste. Thanks!!!

    Why not build a Thunderbird body for it?

    Nah, I thought about it but, after building the Fenderbird, I don't like the limited access to the upper frets and the neck dive is a pain (but it's a cool look). I think there's enough meat on the headstock to flip 2 keys and give if a 2x2 'V" look. That's why I'm thinking EB3. Maybe a flying V? I just don't know if the neck pocket measurements are the same on all Epi's. It might turn into wall art.

    EB-3's have a set neck.

    You could do a non reverse, that would be cool.
    Even better, an Iceman body from Warmoth.

    What I did was make mine fretless and sold it. Fun project, and a cool neck for the guy who bought it.
