... For me only, props to guys who love it! After living with my 2000 ’52 reissue for awhile, I just can't bond with the neck. I want to either swap it out or get it planed and refretted. What I don't like: skinny little frets, 7 1/2" radius Neutral: thick, sticky lacquer - doesn't bother me much What I want: -flat FB, 10 - 12" radius; -fat U or soft V neck, in the range of .90 - 1.00" 1st and 12th - the stock neck is close enough to this for me (I don't have calipers, but I'd guess around .87 - .95ish maybe someone knows specs on these?); -6150 frets, or therabouts, a little wider and lower is okay also, eg. 6140); - 1.65 - 1.7" nut width (not sure what the stock is, but it is okay) -maybe more of a satin finish, front and back; -22 frets would be a bonus, if that is even possible. I am hoping I can get something I can drop right in, preferably with a super duper fret job - I'm happy to pay extra for that. Maybe even a plek? Alternatively, maybe someone can take the current neck, plane it flatter, refret and dress it. In fact, with fatter frets, the 7 1/2" radius probably wouldn't bother me as much. That would work fine, depending on the relative cost, but if it is less then a new neck, I would consider it. It'll devalue the guitar a bit, but I won't be selling it anytime soon (unless disaster strikes, and I have to sell all). What is the best way to approach this, and who would you recommend? Seems like a neck swap on a tele should be pretty straightforward, but getting a really nice one could be a challenge. Advance thanks for any suggestions/advice.
