    I was looking around and noticed the mighty mite replacement bodies and necks were really good prices, and were wondering if anyone knew anything about their quality?

    All I know Mighty Mite parts are built by the Westheimer Corporation, whose best known product ais the Cort line of basses, which are Korean made. That would probably explain why they're less expensive than Warmoth.

    As for the quality, can't help you there.

    this would probably be better served in setup
     
  4. Regarding the body - What kind of quality would you expect to find? A body is pretty much what you see. If it is pre-routed I suppose there could be problems with fit but I would doubt it would amount to much. Especially if you are buying a piece that is unfinished, you'll see exactly what you are getting.

    Necks are another thing though. Since this is literally the heart of the playing instrument there could be more to look after here. But I've seen and played MightyMite necks and they are virtually indistinguishable from others offered as aftermarket replacements.
