    I was wondering if anyone could tell me any place to find wood for the neck of a through neck bass. I have looked on Stew Mac and Luthiers Mercantile but all they have is wood for bolt-on or set neck.

    Go to a lumberyard, or look online. I bet Larry at Gallery Hardwoods could set you up.

    An electric bass neck should start at least 4' long. If you go to a lumberyard, keep that in mind and look for straight, straight-grained lumber.
