    How possible would it be to get a fretless neck for my 89 ray? I was thinking getting one from warmoth, or would it be possible to get one from EB? How would it sound?

    edit : checked warmoth, they cant make necks for EB, so that rules that out... What else can I do?

    Status Graphite in the UK make replacement Stingray necks, in both 4 & 5 string & fretless versions.

    I think they are about £250 over here.

    I dunno if modulus/moses do the same sort of thing at all.

    Alternatively you could try fishing around used guitar shops, as I have seen some that have bins full of necks taken off various busted guitars.

    Moses does them too, don't know about Modulus. Doubt it.

    Edit: The Moses is about $40 cheaper, but I'd much rather buy the Status for the matching headstock shape.

    The Moses is actually much cheaper, you can get it for around $250 from MF. The Status will run you about twice that with shipping.

    I want to get a Moses fretted neck to replace my fretless Stingray neck, but the Moses has a cantilevered fretboard extension to make it 24 frets, which I think(I could be wrong, anyone have one?)will interfere with my intentions of making this my slapper.
