    Warmouth's Gecko body pocket/neck heel shape is, AFAIK, unique. No one else makes interchangable parts.

    Moses' electric bass replacement neck website lists only Fender and Music Man/G&L, and Steinberger replacements, plus something referred to as a "Moses Custom" shape.

    Moses, Status, or even Modulus might be persuaded to do a custom job, though, if you want a carbon-fiber necked Gecko. Hope you have enough money!

    We're aware of and have seen one custom Moses neck intended to fit our body. Seems that their tolerance for things like square corners and flat surfaces is adversely affected by the custom modifications required to fit our body. We had to custom rout a pocket, and we weren't that thrilled with the final fit.

    Would Warmoth send out a body without the neck pocket routed? He could get the Gecko body, and have someone in his area cut a neck pocket for the Moses neck.

    Yes, we can send a body out without a neck pocket. In fact, we'll have some like this in our Available Stock section later this week.
