Curious. I recently picked up a Squier. I love the body, 50s style precision, but the bass seems to fall out of tune consistently and there are a handful of dead spots on the neck. Now for my question… Is it worth swapping out the neck? (Not financially but tonally and performance wise). I see a handful of vintage necks floating around, are you just paying for an antique when you can get the same thing brand new for 1/8th the cost or does the extra age actually make an audible difference? Basically I’m debating Stock Vs MIM Fender Vs Vintage Fender Vs Third Party (not interested in MIA fender, all the MIM necks I’ve played have been on par with the MIA, especially after taking them to a tech). What would you do? What have you done? FWIW I’ll never sell this bass, it’s basically for me to tinker with but I’d love to gig and record with it if I can get it up to my standards. The pickup was already swapped out for Seymour Duncan QP and I’m planning on refinishing the bass and while I’m at it I might as well throw on a new bridge and tuners, so naturally I’m thinking about the neck as well.
