    Uhhh yea

    I typed this up all ready and lost it (stupid school computers)

    Anyway, I've tried contacting Rickenbacker for a neck so I can recreate my brothers 1984, 4001 bass. I wanna do the neck-through construction for authenticity, and I cant find neck sales like that anywhere


    Any help

    Carvin will sell you a neck-through blank with a blank headstock.

  7. You're right. i'm sorry. i thought they did. cheerfully withdrawn.
     
  8. If you would have looked more closely at the bottom of the page, you would see that unshaped headstocks are available at no charge for a 4 string and a $30 option on a 5 string.

    And you should be a little more courteous to folks that do your research for you.

    From the website:

    "For blank (rectangular) oversized unshaped and undrilled headstocks, select the option below (that will add a K after the model number)."
