    It would be more pro to do it this way I figure. I defretted my Yamaha, but it's not perfect. I was wondering where you could buy replacement necks that just so happen to be fretless. :)

    If a Fender neck will fit your Yammy, a Warmoth neck might work.

    Yeah, that was my next question, are necks (fairly) universal? That is to say, is it probable that I could put a Fender neck on my Yamaha?

    Necks aren't anywhere close to being universal. Different neck pockets, screw patterns, scale lenghts, etc. Try to contact Yamaha to get a new neck, or perhaps Warmoth or Moses has one that will work.

    The Swingline necks don't bind up as much.

    WR: Your sig still cracks me up everytime. never change it ever.


    I might just try to fix the neck. It just buzzes at the 12th "fret" on the G. :meh:

    :cool:

    A better solution would be to never play that "fret" again :ninja:

    Ha, I should have left one fret in the bass just to blow some minds! like the 16th fret on the D string. :ninja:
