Re: Replacing X-series Neck
Follow-up--how much is too much for a neck like this? Obviously there are different features at different price points, but assuming I want something nice and playable, and in fair to very good condition-- what does is a good 80's neck worth? There's a very nice PL1770 neck on eBay right now for almost $300 including shipping. '86 is the year of the body, and the Pro-Line specs are basically identical to the X as far as neck, its seems. So it seems like a good bet, but damn that's a lot for a neck. There are also some Viper necks going for around that range, if not more, but the Viper is listed at 57mm at the heel, not 56mm. Is it possible to get away with shaving a hair off the neck, or the neck cavity, or both? Or should I scratch anything that isn't 56mm from the list?
