    For fellow G&L owners...I have a question concerning the interchangability of necks on G&L basses. I have an L2000 and a JB-2, both with the current 6-bolt neck design. I'd like to experiment with trying the thinner JB-2 neck on the L2000; are the necks pretty much interchangeable between the two basses? Is there any difference between the neck pockets, or anything else that might cause problems? Or anything else I should be aware of in general before trying a neck swap? Thanks!

    I've never done it myself but there's a guy over at the Dudepit (cherrygnl) that I remember had swapped necks between an L-2000 and a Climax bass (like an L-1500). Although those were 3-bolters I don't see why there would be any problem with doing the same between 6-bolt basses.

    I don't think it would hurt to try... Just make sure the holes line up...
