    with a maple fretboard. Is such a thing in existence? Can one buy a SS Fender neck in maple?

    Cool, unless just you and I constitute the market.

    You live on Kelly's Island? That is cool. I've often wondered about what it's like for the permanent residents of the island. Gotta be petty boring in the off-season. Do you work there too, or in Sandusky?

    Maybe you could put a Bronco neck on a Jag SS.

    I've never seen one. I really regret the Jag SS I owned being such a dog. It really put me off to the series, and brings confuseternation upon me whenever I hear how much people love these basses here.

    Mine was lifeless feeling and sounding, a total lemon.

    That was my first thought. I don't know if the heel and pocket are the same sizes, though.

    Do they make Bronco necks with a maple board?

    Bronco necks only have maple boards. Great necks too. Really chunky.

    I was thinking the same thing, but was afraid to ask. What's worse is that I actually own one of these basses. :bag:

    You could try one of the Eden short scale necks, but if you're using one of the Squier SS Jags i think you'll have to rerout the neck pocket a little as the Eden use standard size P/J pockets.
    But since they're paddle heads you could make a maple/maple with reverse headstock and get better tension on the E & A strings.

    I predict that by the year 2020 we will be seeing entire posts that look like this:

    I went SDT to LKHP in NY and PKLPPL a JKH which was ZZTOP w BLC and HGFTR. LOL.

    I had no idea Eden was making SS necks.'

    Wow! They look to be an incredible value.

    Chunky? With respect to width, thickness or both? Closer to a Precision than a Jazz?

    Ha!
    I'd be more inclined to type out rather than abrv. if I was using a computer rather than a phone or tablet. But 95% of the time I'm on my phone.
     
  18. Huh. I didn't find the neck on my Bronco to be chunky. I found it to be moderate in depth/thickness and fairly narrow, just right for me.

    This is exactly what I see in my students' emails.

    I just reply with the 'thumbs up' emoji because I don't have the time patience to decipher anything.
