Mexican jazz neck

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Has anyone ever bought a brand new neck from Fender? I have Mexican one on order and wanted to know if it will come with holes pre-drilled? Fender customer service tell me it will but does anyone have personal experience?

Cheers

Can't be 100% but if your buying a finished neck it's just that all holes drilled, nut and finished in whatever lacquer.

It is a finished neck. Was hoping it wouldn't have the holes pre-drilled but can live with it if it does!

The only genuine Fender neck I have experience of did not come pre-drilled, and this was quite a skilled operation to get the right gauge, depth and location when making the holes.

I have a fantastic story about what I found when I took the old neck off, used as packing material in the body pocket, but that's for another day !

Thankfully, it won't be me drilling the holes if required!

What did you find in the pocket?!

I'm too new to the forum ! The story will have to wait, I doubt many would believe me and I wouldn't blame them !

But I figure it was destiny that I should change the neck, maybe for you too, who knows ?!
