    Warmoth or USA Custom Guitars.
     
  6. What kind of bass is it? Sellers like Warmoth have all kinds of headstocks but they all use standard Fender heel sizes.

    Allparts and others sell a paddle headstock neck with a Fender sized heel. You can cut your own shape or configuration for the headstock.

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    Incorrect. A huge part of Warmoth's business model revolves around Fender compatibility. To that end, they sell a variety of necks with different profiles, nut widths, numbers of frets, and headstock shapes that all bolt onto a standard Fender-spec body.

    In addition, they also sell necks and bodies in their higher-end "Gecko" line, which are not Fender compatible.
