Why ask, since you are selling it?

If you wanted to buy a new neck you could get one for way less than that. You could get a late 70s Music Master neck for a good price.

Don't you like the neck that's on it?

Thanks for replying Thomas ! Im from Canada and im doing my best to find a neck on the used market but i cant seem to find an short scale neck . Could you point me out to a good site or somewhere to look ? All i see is 280$ necks on ebay, but with the currency convertion its goes around 350-400$ . and no i dont really like the neck on it , its an noname brand . the guy probably bought it for les than 100$ from korea. I would love something thicker . Do you think that a better quality neck would change alot on my guitar ? Playability , sound..??

thanks again !

I'm also looking for a good 24" scale neck. There's always lots of overpriced ones but they do pop up for sale quite often, you just have to be patient.

The last time I was looking for a Fender Jaguar neck and all the ones on eBay were upwards of $400. I just waited until one came along at the right price and I got one for about 140.

It can be cheaper to just buy a whole guitar and sell off the parts you don't want.

If you like thicker necks you should look out for one from a Fender Bronco.

I don't agree with that statement; my own Bronco neck is almost identical to a MIJ Jaguar and only slightly bigger than my old Jagstang.
Maybe later Broncos had chunkier necks, but not all of them.

Fair enough, I'm only going by personal experience, plus I've only ever had one Bronco and it had the thickest neck of any Fender I've ever had by a country mile. It was quite similar to the neck carve on my SG special. The big back with the vintage radius was a bad combination for me.

It was a 77/78.
