    Anyone ever replace a neck on a bass? I can certainly do basic setup, adjusting neck relief, bridge height adjustments, etc, so is it just a matter of un-bolting the old and re-bolting the new with a basic setup or is there more to it?

    Reason I ask is that I have a 1+ yr old Lakland 44-02 fretless for sale in the classifieds that I really need to unload but since it’s a fretless, it’s obviously in much less demand than a fretted 44-02 would be. What’s the feasibility of sending the fretless neck back to Lakland in exchange for a fretted neck and replacing it myself? I wonder what it would cost? I guess I should be asking Lakland customer service these questions but if you have any insight, please chime in….
