    Alright. I'm rather happy with my Variax tone, but I'd be happier on a thinner, faster neck. I'd like to start shopping for new necks for it...but I've never done that before and am not sure what to look for. Can anyone give me some help/hints?

    I play a schecter often, I love the feel of it's neck. If I could find a neck similar that would fit my variax, I'd be one happy dude.

    Thanks for any help

    +1 on that! I would love a Variax with a thinner neck. Pedulla instead of P-Bass, if you know what I mean.

    why not get it shaved down?
     
  4. Warmoth has variax replacement bodies and necks.

    Sadly, Warmouth only makes necks and bodies for the Variax guitars - not for the basses.

    Check on this, but I thought I read at some point that the Variax bass will accept most Fender style necks. The stock Warmoth necks may fit.
     
  7. Yeah, the variax neck pocket is designed to accept fender replacement necks. Get yourself a jazz neck and go.

    The neck pocket on the Variax I had (4 string) would not take a Fender neck, it was slightly too narrow. The neck pocket will likely need to be widened slightly.

    I had to have a custom neck made for my 5-string, because I couldn't find any that fit. I'd love to get a Moses Graphite one, though.
