    I think a basic neck from either company will be over $200 new. Check out eBay for some good buys. I have an All Parts neck on my main bass and I love it, but Warmoth makes some great stuff as well (I think it's a little more expensive, though.)

    Warmoth is more expensive, but it's worth it.

    Don't get a junk neck, which is what you'll most likely find on the bay. Save a little more and get the Warmoth.

    I'm going to give USACG necks a shot. Will still use Warmoth for bodies, as they have a better selection of shapes to choose from.
  6. They created an excellently handcrafted lined fretless bass neck for my first and only [thus far] bass project. Quality is fantastic! Having said that, I know very little about Allparts, so I have no idea how good their necks are.

    All Parts makes some quality products, but unlike Warmoth, offer no custom products. The necks are licenced by Fender. I have a Jazz bass neck (maple with rosewood, binding and nice block inlays).

    Just so ya know...

    As it was said in the other thread, that neck would be about $225 new, so $90 isn't a bad deal....if the neck is good.

    I'm hoping someone else will comment.

    a warmoth neck (maple/maple or maple/rosewood) should only run about $200-$210 with a satin finish on it. Doesn't include parts, though. That's extra. I say go with Warmoth over allparts. If you get a warmoth body, get a warmoth neck. Since they are Fender replacement parts, they should fit each other, but buying from the same place will assure that.

    I stand corrected. :smug:

    The Warmoth neck (regular maple/rosewood) with gloss finish is about $210 (quote from site).

    The All Parts neck in the same config. is $225 on their site.

    If you have the money, I'd go and buy a neck from Warmoth. It's new, and shouldn't have any problems. But if you can't spend that much, $90 is a great deal.
