    Everyone please read post #39. Lemme know if you want to be taken off the list. No prollems, peeps.

    As of right now I have the minimum amount of people (hopefully no one drops out), but I can still get some before I ask for the invoice from EDEN. He's sending me the shipping cost tomorrow and I asked for an additional discount :twisted: (no promises). THANKS EVERYONE!

    Wondering if anyone's interested in ordering some necks and bodies at a group rate.

    The benefit is that I can get ash bodies and unfinished T necks. Both of which are difficult to order direct, but they said they'd do it for multiples. The minimum for necks would be 12 and bodies are 6. They can custom(verb) tuner holes that would fit Klusons instead of their normal standards. Skunk trusses are another option.

    $28.80 neck (unfinished maple T-headstock, skunk-truss, Kluson holes; I'm still talking to him)
    $39.19 body (unfinished ash T)

    Tuxedo (me): 2 necks, 2 bodies
    Shepherd: 2 necks, (1 S neck, 1 S body, 1 LP body)
    guitarbuilder: 1+ neck
    discogravy: 1 neck, (1 body ?)
    RodeoTex: 2 necks
    steve gibson: 3 necks
    HOBBSTER01: (1 neck, 1 body ?)
    cpeters01: 2 necks, 2 bodies
    mudbean: 1 neck, 1 body
    Colt W. Knight: 2 necks
    Buckocaster51: 1 neck, 1 body
    -Vampyre-: (1 lefty neck) maybe
    LK: 1 neck, 1 body
    Gone Fission: 1 neck, 1 body
    TCASTJOE: 1 neck, 1 body

    Total: 19+ necks, 9 bodies

    Goal: 12 necks, 6 bodies (minimum order)

    What kind of ash are they using for the bodies? Northern or Swamp? How many pieces do they use in a body, 2,3, or more? What kind of prices are you looking at? I could be interested in some necks if they can do a one pc with a walnut stripe.

    Hong Kong I think. He has a chinese name.

    $28.80 for the necks, but I'm thinking I could get this for less if it's unfinished. I would have to get some money for shipping once they get to me. I'm not making any money off of this. I just wanted a group rate.

    The ash bodies I'll have to find out, but they probably will not be one piece since they're so cheap at $39.19.

    I have to order a minimum of 12 necks and 6 bodies. All one style.

    I'm thinking maple necks and ash bodies, all unfinished, 'cos they don't make a lot of them. They can do a skunk truss, but I'm not sure if it's extra or free. I have to contact him again.

    I'm probably getting 2 of each for myself. So I need to offset 4 bodies and 10 necks.

    i'm interested in a neck and maybe a body, assuming the quality is not garbage

    would they be routed for pickups already?

    You could sign me up for a couple of unfinished maple necks. Of course I'd prefer they didn't have the Eden brand on the heel but I could live with that.

    discogravy,

    I think they're passable quality, but for the price it's just a freakin' fun deal. It would be my first project, actually.

    RodeoTex,

    I'll write you down. The great thing is by doing the group rate it won't be laminated necks. I could get him to forgo the EDEN stamp, perhaps. I'll ask when I order them.

    When they were selling out of Vancouver, a 2pce alder body for $54 list was $80, 3pce ash body went for $33 list was $56, a Tele neck for $33 list was $60. Those were cash prices. They have since moved to CA. On both web sites all prices are O.B.O. so there's plenty of room to haggle. I've seen paddle head necks go for $21, just cut your own shape. So you cant mix and match say a Tele and Strat body?

    So you think I can get it for even less than the dealer rates if I just ask? That's a good idea.

    Paddle-head—that's an idea. They're doing the T head-shapes included. That eliminates the trouble of using a template. I mean it's cheap enough as it is, but I hear you.

    Also, they may have adjusted prices due to the economy, but I'm not certain.

    Chinese love to haggle, just be a hard ass and tell them you'll go somewhere else. You can probably get the neck for $42 and body for $56 including shipping from the guy in CA. but the selection isnt that great right now. I think he's just a middle man, maybe give him a shout. Are you in contact with the actual manufacturer?

    As far as I know, I think so. At first I tried to get him to make an unfinished neck and an ash body for me and he told me he would if I ordered a batch, 'cos they normally didn't make them like that.

    I'll probably haggle the shipping out of him. I feel kind of bad 'cos it's so cheap, but that's what I love about capitalism…which Hong Kong seems to be really really good at doing.

    okay so i just went onto the fleabay and was checking things out. and saw those lp's which for a 120 look great, plus if you read the fine print it ships in an abs hardcase. shipping is 100 so for 220 you get guitar and hardcase!!! but then i worry about straight necks and so on.
    has anyone bought and had luck with any of these?
    so to hi jack. its sorta on topic.

    The guy I was dealing with in Vancouver's name was Bruce. When I asked his name he said "just call me Bruce" which kinda made me laugh at the time. Really nice guy. He was selling parts out of his apartment.

    Hmmm…that's weird. Isn't it the same company though, Vancouver and HK?

    i recently bought an eden neck from the hong kong shop. The ebay listings are for 'Buy it now or best offer'. I put in an offer for $20 and it was accepted immediately.
    I realise this was for a finished neck, but you should be able to haggle down further than $28.80.

    Just giving you a heads up :p

    Thanks, I'll start to haggle when I get enough people so that I have some leverage. :cool:
