    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if there's anyone that makes a vintage styled P-neck?

    I always loved the feel of the 51 reissue P, and now I want to put together a black and maple P of my own.

    I want the 7.25 radius, 1.75 nut, vintage tiny fret wire, and a fender headstock.

    I'd love if it had 21 frets and a 70s style headstock as well, but those are less important.

    Preferably made in the USA

    All parts, mighty mite, warmoth, USACG don't really do this kinda thing as far as I can tell.

    Thanks guys!

    USACG will do it.

    They just won't do the Fender headstock, but it's my understanding that their standard headstock is very close and only needs a little sanding to get that F shape.

    Cool! I remember the USACG headstock not being very pleasant, but I just checked and I actually dig it.

    Anyone else out there that I can go to at a similar price?

    You can try to find a 62' or 57' AVRI neck. They don't have 21 frets or a 70's style headstock, but they have everything else you want.

    Thanks man! Not a bad suggestion. I sent USACG an e-mail, so I'll see how that plays out.

    I've been considering a Road Worn P neck as well, and end up going that route depending on the overall cost.
