    Up for sale is the neck from my Fender Road Worn Jazz bass, I'll ship the string tree with it but I'm keeping the tuners. I bought this neck from the Stratosphere in 2017 for my jazz bass build, but I've come to find I prefer thicker U and C necks. It's still in good shape, I've mainly used GHS Precision Flats 45-95 over the last two years so the frets are in good condition and I've kept the fingerboard oiled. I've had DR Fat Beams on it for the last week with minimal playtime

    A fair warning about this neck - it's not that strong. I set it up with GHS Precision Flats 45-105 when I first got it and even those were a bit too much for it and resulted in too high an action. I slipped a washer on the truss rod and it still has a bit of turn left in it. I've also used T.I. Jazz Flats and the current DR Fat Beams with low action

    Only trades I'm looking for are thicker bound and blocked 70's classic jazz necks, pau ferro or maple.

    Roadworn J's have pau ferro fretboards. Not rosewood.

    This is an older model from 2017, before the CITES regulation.

    I have an older one that I believe is rosewood also (whatever rosewood actually is). Fender actually listed it as rosewood for a while, so I have always thought the darker ones (some are lighter colored) are probably rosewood. Mine looks absolutely nothing like the pau ferro on my mustang p/j, so I guess it's possible it's just dyed heavily, but even if it has been, the grain and texture is completely different. I guess what is called pau ferro might differ a lot too.

    I just talked to Fender. They said it was rosewood from '09 to '17. I stand corrected.
