  1. i need a new neck, and i found this one on ebay for 70 bucks buy it now which is a great deal i think. what do you guys think does it look like an alright neck to you? i e-mailed him and asked him if it had a finish, and i also asked him what brand it was.

    That link isnt working for me, but all I can say is you get what you pay for...

    I would save for a Warmoth Neck.

    If it isn't a good neck, it ain't worth a nickel.

    It kinda depends on what you're planning on bolting it on........but you can get a Warmoth maple/rosewood Fender style neck for $150. WELL worth it; built like a tank, and they even have a warranty.

    So true. And the neck is something you really shouldn't skimp on.

    Warmoth makes some good stuff. I'm very happy with my All Parts neck, too.

    Mighty Mite = Crap.

    I have heard horror stories. If "Save for a Warmoth" isnt enough info for you then I guess I just have to say it.

    I have one on a tele guitar, frets are crap, and there are high spots around the 13th and 18th. If it was a bass I'd pull the frets and level the board, but I don't play guitar enough to bother.
     
  11. ok it looks like i should just save up for a warmoth. but are you sure it will only cost me 150 for a maple/rosewood neck. i really wanted a vintage tint to it but i see that is a bit expensive. can you get the neck totally done at the factory, like ggetting tuners on it a installed already slotted neck?
