    If you are the original owner of the bass & the warranty is still in tact, you can get one from Fender.

    If you are not the original owner, try contacting Fender anyway. You might have to send the old neck back. You might have to go through an authorized dealer (Sam Ash, Guitar Center). When I worked @ sam Ash, I had a '70 P-bass body & I sent them pic's to verify that it actually was a Fender & they sent me a '70 RI MIJ neck!!!! The neck was so awesome I deceided to put it on another p-bass I had.

    You could try looking on eBay.

    Good luck.
     
  3. Jim, if it has to be an EXACT replica, I'd say try the Fender site: www.fender.com I think there's a link to their custom shop there. If you just need a neck, try www.warmoth .com They have necks, bodies and anything else you could want all made to bolt on. I've never bought anything from them, but others here have and said the stuff was up to par.

    Hope that helps,
    Mike J.
