Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by mcmon002, Jan 12, 2013.

  1. hi guys, i have a fender deluxe mim 5string. and i am planning to replace the neck with warmoth jazz neck.

    could you pls help me find the exact replacement for the bass?

    is there different dimensions with mim fender deluxe 5 and standard 5?

    Deluxe- 22 fret, designed for the USA neck pocket
    Standard - 20 fret, should work for MIM Std or Dlx...

    But still, take measurements and confirm.

    I'm not sure of that, but I know they are both 20 fret necks, both MIM, and should be the same. I'm sure someone could shed more light on this who has one.
    All I know FOR SURE is, the Deluxe Warmoth is not the same.
  6. Subbed - I have the Active Deluxe V as well (with the five in-line on the headstock). I want to put a warmoth neck on mine (4 + 1). I bought this bass used and have upgraded the electronics with an audere and nordy pups. It is a project bass that I'm having fun with, and i think a new neck will really make this bass amazing.
