Something always seems to go screwy with my projects. I'm building a lightweight bass and ordered a "showcase" dinky P body from Warmoth that weighs 3.8 lbs. It showed up today and I tried to mate my Fender licensed Mighty Mite P neck to it. The neck heel measures a correct 2.5". The neck pocket measures 2-13/32". Way too small. I called Warmoth immediately as per their instructions. I wind up on the phone with a wise ass acting manager. He tells me that all their neck pockets are narrow due to the inconsistent size of aftermarket necks. I tell him that his neck pocket should accept a standard 1-1/2" licensed neck. He tells me to use a sanding block to widen it. I ask if they'll take it back and rout it correctly. He says they won't re rout it for me, but they'll take it back and return my money. That's sort of fair I guess, but it's a nice lightweight body that was cheaper because it was a "showcase" body. I'm going through a divorce with 2 kids in college and my money is tight. I can't afford to pay their standard price for a custom lightweight body. I suspect that this body may have been returned or "B" stocked due to the defective neck pocket and they sold it as a discounted "showcase" body without disclosing all the facts. I guess I'll keep it and use sanding blocks, but it makes me nervous. I'm not a seasoned luthier/repairman. If the pocket was off by a 1/32 I could understand it. I feel like I've been pimped at least just a little. Would this be acceptable to you?
