    I can find Fender style shaped replacement bass necks till the cows come home, but I can't seem to find any other style. I'm looking for a no name replacement bass neck in a sort of Ibanez Sound Gear style. All I can seem to find are P and J style no name bass necks.

    If you know of a source I'd appreciate knowing about it. I just want to dress up one of my Glarry basses that is an Ibanez style with a neck that has a maple Fret Board.

    Ibanez makes basses with at least 6 different heel sizes, depending on the number of strings, number of frets, etc. There isn't one "ibanez style".

    But you’re assuming I want it for an Ibanez.

    The thing is there are all kinds of J and P ‘style’ necks being made that will fit cheap basses like Glarry’s P & J ‘style’ basses, but nobody seems to be making similar replacement necks for Glarry’s Ibanez ‘style’ basses.
    Looking for these but different with Maple FB, binding, etc.

    4” strings, 24 frets, 34” scale
    2+2

    assuming scale length and fret count are correct, you'll need more measurements taken at the neck heel and body pocket for a better search result.

    Wrong. I was assuming you thought there was an Ibanez standard heel size since you said "Ibanez style" and were comparing it to the Fender standard heel size.
