...a 3 piece reinforced Maple neck?
you mean with a Warmoth neck? then i have!
but its really heavy. sure, it'll be insured for no deadspots and whatnot, but if your body's too light like my USA custom one is, then you'll get some neck dive.
If you're talking about a bolt-on style neck, I'm not sure if anyone makes a THREE piece. USA Custom Guitars makes a 2-piece, with graphite reinforcement strips in the neck parallel to the truss rod. Likewise, Warmoth reinforces their necks (see above) with steel bars, but I don't remember if they only do one-piece necks of if you can get a two-piece. You could always contact a custom luthier (DP, Kinal, Ken Benensee, Chris Stambaugh, FBB, etc.) to see if they would be willing to clamp a three-piece neck together for you with graphite for reinforcement.
I'm getting serious about a P-width, angled peg head, ebony fretless neck for my standard MIM J fretless.
How much neck dive can I expect?
I can't see where Hipshot Ultralights would be worth the fabulous cost above the GB7 tuners, unless the GB7 are cheesy...
Hamer's CruiseBass Jazz clone, at least NOS the 5 string fretless 2Tek version that I've been at a local shop, has a 3 piece maple neck like you're asking about.
