J Bass neck replacement

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bos_mindwarp, Aug 5, 2005.


  1. I can't seem to find a decent luthier that does epoxy-treatment for my MIM fretless jazz, and Im sick of flatwounds. So I was thinking of buying a new neck, something like allparts.com sell.

    The alternatives I have are rosewood, maple, ebenholtz and graphite fingerboards. I was leaning towards ebenholtz, because I think its hard wood, but I am not sure, and I have no idea how does it sound. Could it handle common roundwounds, like DR?

  3. HG Thor looks cool and all, except for 2 things:

    1.) I'd be looking at at least 6 months waiting time
    2.) I'd really like some luthier in sweden
