Is there an equivalent of the TMO-Fat with a rosewood board?
Called the TRO-FAT.
Supply can be interrupted from time to time, and I suppose it is always possible Allparts discontinued it, but they sure offered it for a while.
I've got some, and my two complaints are:
The fret kerf on the side of the rosewood is kinda deep, and they fill it with the wrong substance, which bleeds out sometimes and it stands out too much, visually; and
The width at the nut is 1 + 5/8ths is just that, and not an Angstrom more. MIM and USA "1 + 5/8ths" necks are actually more like 1.650.
Love me some TRO-FAT. I've had three.
As others have said, the definitely stock it under the TRO-FAT SKU, but it doesn't appear available on the site at the moment. WD Music also makes a TRV FAT that's an unfinished rosewood tele neck. No firsthand experience with that particular product, but the quality is typically comparable to Allparts.
Ta everyone. I haven't any luck finding a TRO-FAT for sale anywhere currently,maybe it'll make a comeback...
The WD music jobby seems to be out of stock too,though it is available to order.
We had been clamoring for it for a long time, and then maybe 2009 Allparts started offering it. I've got a fair number of them, and I do remember being told once they weren't available that month - I lost track as to whether they kept the stream open.
If you're in Europe, ask these guys, they are from the Netherlands:
I got an Allparts fat rosewood neck from them not a long time ago. Good price, too. Drop them an email, they don't always show everything on the webpage or at the eBay store.
No affiliation - just a happy customer.
Dang, they have good prices on those fender necks! If I didn't already have one for my build-in-progress.. Next time!
Ta,Piotr. I sent them an email.
Have you tried Warmoth? Or even Stew Mac? They may not have the exact neck you're looking for, but I'll they've got something reasonably close. I have a very fat-back(ed) maple neck/board that I've had for nearly 20 years. I used tung oil and that neck looks like it's got a vintage tint, just from the years.. Damn thing cost me about $160. Best neck I've ever put on a Tele!!!
Just to let interested parties know,I got an SRO-FAT to change the neck on my Strat partcaster. It came from axecaster who has a shop on the bay. He's in the UK for those inhabiting this part of the world.
I'm not affiliated in any way,just a happy repeat customer.
I set into making it mine right away today.
Frets levelled and crowned. (It barely needed a touch.)
Fret edges filed and the edge of the board rounded to my taste.
First couple of coats of Tru-oil put on.
