Where Can I Find 24 Fret Bass Necks?

    I'm looking to replace the neck on my 24 fret bass, but all that I seem to find are 21 or 22 frets. I found one site (can't remember at the moment), but they only had one neck that would work, but the headstock was not what I had in mind :meh:

    Can someone point my in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    Cool, thanks. I guess I should take the time to fill out my profile. I'm in the US

    Thanks again!
     
  4. Warmoth doesn't make any 4-string necks to fit 24-fret bodies, as far as I know. The Gecko necks are 5- or 6-string. All the 4-string necks are made to fit Fender-style bodies (20-fret), even if they have fretboard extentions to a few extra frets at the end.

    Carvin sells 24-fret neck blanks for neck-through basses--maybe you could get one of those and cut it down to fit a bolt-on?

    Yup, I just noticed that too Mike. Their 24 Fret is just an extension like you said.

    I guess the neck I have is a long scale? - I'm about to just throw that Bass out the window.... it's making me think and work too hard... :mad:

    So I guess the idea of finding a neck that "fits right in" is out of the question?

    schector also makes 24 fret bass's...CV-4 to be exact.
     
  7. It's pretty tough to find a neck that "fits right in" on anything that's not a Fender clone, unfortunately.
