How do i buy a Fender Jazz bass neck(w/out the body)?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by djshawn47, Mar 28, 2004.


  1. Does anyone know if it is possible to purchase a fender jazz bass deluxe bolt on neck without having to buy an entire bass?

    Does fender sell necks direct or could a dealer get one for me????

    Anyone have any advice?

    Thanx

    Warmoth is your best bet. Fender doesn't sell replacement necks, but you can get a neck with the Fender brandname on it from Warmoth, but only for J and P bass necks.
     
  3. The other place to get Fender replacement necks would be Guitar Parts USA:

    Actually, I would consider this to be a better choice than Warmoth, since the Warmoth necks tend to be on the heavy side.

    You can always keep an eye out for pawn shop trash. I mean, if the body and electronics are shot, you might as well haggle them down, buy the bass and strip it for scraps. It's more trouble, but another option.

    Which Jazz Deluxe do you have, the MIM or MIA?
    The MIM neck is the standard 20 fret, while the MIA is a 22 fret neck. Overall length of the necks is different, and will not interchange properly.
