After years of playing a P bass with its wide neck, I wanted to try something different. So I ordered a J-Style neck from TNT (guitarpartsonline.com) for $80 +shipping. The transaction was smooth and Ken is nice and easy to deal with. Its a vintage style neck. Meaning no reinforcement bars are installed. I finished the neck with Tru-Oil (nice stuff) and installed the tuners from my MIM P-Bass. The neck seems to be very stable, only a minor truss rod adjustment was necessary. The neck comes with a nut (Im pretty sure its plastic) and the slots are rather high. But I consider this a plus. This way you can file the slots to your liking. The spacing of the slots was perfect. I ordered a brass nut for the neck, but I didnt install it. The slots are a little bit off compared to the slot that came with the neck. Since I like the spacing on the nut that came installed and it sounds just fine to me, I dont see a need to change it. The fretwork is nice, no buzz with an almost straight neck and a medium action. I believe these are medium size frets (not really an expert on fret sizes). Soundwise the neck is - to my surprise - a little bit beefier but I have only plaid it through a 10 Watts practice amp. The typical dead spot on the G-String on necks with a headstock moved down form the D to the C#. But its not too bad. Im curious what would happen if I install a neck with steel or graphite reinforcement. I may give this a try sometime in the future. All in all, this is a nice neck and Im happy with the outcome. For $80 you cant beat it.
