    My MIM Jazz V neck went wonky. Action super-high and truss rod bottomed out. Took it to a tech guy and he agreed the neck is shot. It happens to be one with the five tuners on top, which I like, but not necessary to have.


    I have a Squier Affinity Jazz V that’s kinda beat up and I don’t use, and was thinking the neck should fit, but I’d kinda like to keep that together for some reason. (Am I correct that it would fit on the Fender?)


    Is there a place I can get a neck for it with the “Fender” logo on it? The tech was saying something about getting one, but having to send the old one in, but he didn’t seem real sure about the details.


    Any suggestions, and cost estimates?


    Thanks so much.

    Ouch... maybe I'll have to see if the Squier neck fits.

    I'll just google and search for a replacement neck, maybe without the logo.

    Thanks.

    You may be able to get a little better deal from Warmoth. From my experience, they are super high quality parts. Mighty Mite, All Parts and US Guitar may also be an option for you.

    Warmoth. Standard jazz 5 neck. 20 fret ....you want the 20 fret model. Not the 22 deluxe model.

    How the heck does a neck go bad after being okay for years-- 100+ gigs on it, then just hanging in the house with the rest of the basses that had no problem.


    I do remember when i bought that bass new, hanging on the wall of a local music store the action was really high, but it adjusted down and set up nicely. Maybe it was just a bad neck from the get-go and finally went beyond what the truss rod could adjust.
