Replacement neck for my B5

Postby plong123 » Sat Feb 25, 2017 5:53 pm

I was thinking about ordering a replacement fretless neck for my B5. Will the N522 fit on a B5? Or are the dimensions different since they switched to the B50?

Is the B5 narrow string spacing? Probably need a call or email to sort out such a precise design detail.

I am in similar situation with my B4 bass. Did you decide if you are going to mod your neck or body to fit?

Yeah, I don't want to mess with it too much. I think I'm going to take my cheap Tiawanese backup four string Jazz bass and order a Warmoth fretless neck for it. Seems like a less-complicated option.
