    They will not sell just a neck. I asked a couple of months ago ago buying a fretless neck for my Thumb. They said they do not sell just the necks.

    Let me know if they tell you differently.

    Don't crack on Warwick for this policy, most of the major players in the market have the same policy. I guess it's to keep someone from buying a neck, slapping it on a piece of painted plywood, and reselling it as authentic.

    It is suck because it is under warranty periode, the neck is warped and delaminate, and they don't want to pay any shipping cost .
     

  9. So why did you ask the question in the first place?

    1) The fact that they need the neck back is because it has to be measured in first place.

    2) They update the serial number of the bass with the new number engraved on the neck.

    3)Dana B. Goods does pay the shipping of the neck as long it is inside their distribution territory. U.S.

    4) I just replaced mine and the results were awesome, great service, they payed shipping inside U.S., etc etc.

    5) The necks are made only for warwick basses and each bass may have only 1 neck, that prevents other people from using those necks on other instruments.

    6) Warwick Germany covers paid warranty trough their distributors only. So its the distributor´s responsability to pay for the shipping.

    Well, I have a Warwick bass. I need a new neck
    This is why I need a Warwick neck

    Warwick necks are very specific and also an essential part of their sound.
    It comes from wenge, the 1 block concept, the way they arranged the flat trussroad, the frets (warwick frets are very important for their sound) and the special adjustable nut.

    Among all other specificities, warwick necks really make their sound.

    If the frets are not the warwick brass composite stuff, it won't sound like a Warwick

    You realize, of course, that you'd have gotten more useful responses if you'd shared that info from the beginning.

    Contact Dana B. Goods, the Warwick Distributor, or go to your local Warwick dealer and get it through them.

    So getting a new neck shouldn't be too hard?

    Why go to your local Warwick dealer when you have the Person to call direct,plus going thru a dealer 1-they might tell you they cant do it because to them it may be an odd request and 2-you will surely pay the middle man.

    Maybe you should not have asked for help :)
