    Well I have had this extra neck sitting for a while and felt like doing a little work this weekend. Just a simple neck swap on my mutt, partscaster. Went from a mighty mite Rosewood neck to this 95' 52 reissue one. It's been refretted with larger frets and has an extra one added, haha. Either way it feels and plays great and thought I would share a picture. Thanks for stopping by.

    Looks good from this end. Esquires are always fun to build and mod. Planning on converting my CV 50s BSB before to much longer.

    I'm building an Esquire now.

    Tell me, are the necks close to the same profile? Which one feels "best" to you?

    I must say, I've tried a few different necks and the MM necks always seem to feel really good. I like the vintage V shape, but have C, modern C, chunky, etc too. I get mine raw and tint and finish them, and they feel better than any poly neck I have felt. I know it's an opinion thing, but I'm curious.

    That looks pretty darn good too IMO!

    Thanks for checking it out. You know, I do like both necks. I think the mighty mite is a modern C shape. I had the frets done and a bone nut cut for it and it really helped. The mighty mite neck is a bit heavier, but again, they just both feel good. The fender does feel a little bit thinner.
