Replacement neck for Washburn Raven?

Hi everyone, I need to replace the neck on my Washburn Raven, any recommendations on where to find a Raven neck or which necks are compatible?

Thanks,
Bruno

There's probably no stock look-alike replacement available. You kinda have to take what you get, or contact some luthier about hand-building a custom neck.

Warmoth has a few 3-3 versions. Their snakehead is really dorky (apparently based on the prototype Esquire/Tele), but the "Vortex" & "Warmoth" are decent, & maybe you'd rather have a Fender-style panhead.

If you want a "one-to-one" swap on any bolt-neck guitar made since the '70s, measure the old neck from the nut (where the string passes) to the center of the 12th fret, then double that, which gives the scale length. The only source I can find says his measures out at 630 mm, which works out to 24.8" a.k.a. the "Gibson scale" (LP, SG, 335).

Most replacement necks meant for Gibson or PRS, however, are NOT shaped to fit a bolt-on pocket. Warmoth isn't cheap, but they exclusively make bolt-on necks. If you go dig around on eBay, you'll quickly find some interesting options for under $100, often so-called "conversion" necks so Tele/Strat players could have the shorter Gibson scale.
M1SDL; XB-400 (natural), XB-400 (burg), XB-500 (teal); X-10, X-33; D46CESP, WCSD30SCE; BT-3, BT-4, BT-6, JB-80; WS-4; WI-66V; Lyon LCT24; OS Autoharps

Thanks! The neck is warped, and the last luthier that saw it a couple years ago said there wasn't much left to do. I still want to take it to someone else first, but was considering my options. The guitar is quite beaten up but I really like it, and I'm afraid a new neck just won't be the same. Also, I'm based in Europe, so not sure your friends could still help... either way, I'll post back here if I really need to replace the neck.

Thanks for the tips on the neck replacements too, Tony!

Well, I hope I can get assistance here. I seek for a person who was awarded by the scholarship. I have a possibility to win a scholarship for studying at Georgetown University. However, I need to write an introductory essay. I would appreciate if someone shares the contacts of a reliable scholarship essay writing service.
