    Really, charging $199 for finished necks and $169 for finished bodies, and a premium for the American stuff... really, they'll put every aftermarket provider out of business at those prices.

      I hope this puts a serious crimp in a particular chop shop on eBay who strips tons of Fender guitars and sells the parts for handsome profits.

    Oooo, I'm interested. I like it. I hope they do well with it.

      So it looks like Leo's original idea is finally possible - the one where you just buy a new neck instead of refret one.

      I hope this does well, and they expand to more options.

        Yeah, I think they'll probably see how the bread and butter necks and bodies do, and eventually I could see them offering a wider range of necks and bodies.

      My brother just put a new Warmoth neck on his old J Bass. The old one had frets worn to nubs and I know he would have bought a Fender if he could have.
      We're not in Kansas anymore.

        I believe its only for the usa market that can purchase the neck and body seperate. As for the stratosphere, its great for the international buyer, as what you pay additional for, you gain in reduced shipping charges and maybe tax?

      All modern C necks... what's the point ?

        $500 for a neck?

        Riiiiiiiight.

        You guys wouldn't believe what a whole USA Fender can be picked up for in my neck of the broke ass country right now.
