    Is USACG recommended as a bass neck builder? I'm working on my first project bass, and although I'm building the body, doing the hardware and the electronics and the assembly myself, I don't feel ready to build a neck. The local shops don't have much of a reputation, and the pricing is fairly steep, so I thought of ordering through USACG. Does anyone have experience with them? Are they into wierd custom specs and are they competent with such things?

    thanks

    I had them build a Jazz neck based on a '63 contour and it turned out fantastic. The fretwork and all around playability are incredible.
    The neck is so good I had them make another with vintage sized frets for a more old school bass. The necks are $217 each which is very reasonable.
