    Is it possible to buy Warwick necks alone from anywhere?

    I emailed Dana B Goods and they said that they do not sell parts, but that I should check ebay and such.

    I'm looking for a fretted 4 string neck to replace the fretless neck on my Corvette Std.

    Any tips?

    Hmmm. I talked to the repair guy at Dana B earlier this year to ask them to replace a slightly warped neck on my Streamer and they told me they could do it for something like $350 or $375? Maybe they can replace a damaged neck but won't sell one outright?

    Perhaps, but $375 for a neck seems a bit steep considering I could buy I used fretted corvette on eBay for $400-500.

    Perhaps that's what I should try?

    Unless you want both necks, I would suggest just selling your fretless and buying a fretted corvette.

    I'm in the same predicament, except I have a fretted and want a fretless. Perhaps we can help each other? What year is your Corvette?

    Sounds like you might be able to trade necks with someone. Another suggestion...I have a Corvette $$ fretless that I recently put Dunlop 6230's on. Cool thing is that I now have an ebony neck with vintage frets, something I wanted but not offered by Warwick. The ash body/ebony board combo is sweet. Good luck.
  8. Not to hijack this thread, but....

    I'm glad to hear you like that combo. I have a 5 string Warwick FNA Jazzman LTD 2004 on the way that has a swamp ash body, Koa top (Ekanga in between), Ovangkol neck and a fretted Ebony board. It has the MM/J Pup set-up, too.

    The only thing I am somewhat concerned about is that I may not like the string spacings. I had a Thumb 5 Bolt-on and I always felt the string spacing was too small.

    Oh well, it's such a pretty bass that surely I can sell it quickly if I can't get used to it as I'm sure there are plenty of people hanging out here who like the reduced spacing.
