    Hi,

    I live in the uk and recently bought a Mexican active deluxe fender jazz from the states by mail order. When it came the truss rod was broken so i got the supplier to claim for it from the shippment people.
    He said he can get me a new neck no problem from fender but he offered me instead if i wanted it a Lakland SKYLINE BASS NECK MODEL 44-02.
    Is this worth it? i'm not bothered about it not saying fender on my headstock if its a superior neck...
    Anyones help would be appreciated,

    thanks

    tom

    Probably a better neck, if it fits I say do it, but it seems odd that it would fit in the first place. If you could get an American Fender neck replacement that might be a better way to go.
