someone ordered a replacement one, now they dont want it.  I got an email about a spare neck available, started banging my head on the desk in frustration and passed out for a bit. Then searching through my wallet, sofa, car seats for any spare money realised that I am indeed skint and im not up to prostitution standards lookswise.  The guy im building a paddy for at the minute doesnt fancy the extra cost to have an original neck, doesnt even want logo's on it.  So im not in a position to keep it.

yes.

after a bit more investigation there seems to be more to it, I may keep this new one and sell the one thats currently on my paddy for a bit less money.  Just trying to get some more info to make certain, but i doubt I'll need 2.0 necks.....[:)]

Thank Junior88, but i think im going to have to take a hint from N4ESA_UK's motto 'if you cant afford it, build it'...

neck blank will need to be min. 1 thick, 4 1/2 wide and about 28 long.

Fingerboard blank will just be standard strat size and fretboard scale (25 1/5 or 648mm) youll also need at least 18 truss rod.

you can have whatever you want [:)]   They can cut fret slots to a specified scale length and they can also radius the fretboard to 12.  I think the slotting and shaping is $15 extra, but its worth it.

Id give them a ring instead of emailing. You will get a quicker response and they dont mind pricing stuff up for ppl before they place orders.
