Any cheap Tele necks in the UK?

Discussion in 'Telecaster Discussion Forum' started by 7171551, Oct 3, 2017.

  1. Apologies if this is the wrong sub-forum.

    Has anyone had any luck finding cheap Tele necks? All I want is something playable and useable with the minimum fuss. :rolleyes:

    If you can steer me to a company or ebay seller you think fits the bill I'd be grateful.

    Thanks in advance folks!

    Cheers.

    I build and look for parts. Since the CITES thing there are now very few decent rosewood boards new or used around. A few maples.

    Try eBay, the Fretboard, Pre-loved and Gumtree for used and parts bargains.
     

  3. Maple would be absolutely fine. Seen a few on ebay, but has anyone any experience with them? Also, an ebay seller actually capable of selling what he has described and posting it in a timely manner would be nice.. (not that I'm bitter or anything!)

    Last neck I bought was from Strings Direct. £199 for a 50's Mex C Tele neck.

    Also check eBay for used Tele necks.
     

  5. TT: the operative word was "cheap." :p Up here, on gumtree I could get a neck with the rest of the guitar still attached for not much more than 200 squid. :lol:

    But thanks for the replies folks...

    I've got a rosewood board tele neck I don't need if you're interested? Headstock is painted but easy sorted! Its got Levinson blade tuners attached if needed. Pm me if you like. Say £40 all in, posted...
