    Hi all,
    I am looking to put together a 'made neck' onto a Left handed MIM body.
    I would prefer to buy a 43mm standard rosewood on maple left handed 9.5 radius neck. modern C would be fine.

    Has anyone sourced anywhere in the uk that sell/ make these and which do not cost a fortune. all the usual places i have tried never have any left in stock.

    if anyone has used the likes of Guitar build, could they provide some feedback.

    many thanks

    From what I've seen, rosewood necks disappeared from stock over here following CITES regulations.

    As it appears that rosewood necks have recently been exempted, those necks may shortly become available again over here.

    I have been looking for similar for a long time and they're just not out there imo. I have acquired the odd Allparts RW fretboard neck in the past, still looking for ebony as well. Very hard to come by. This is something Fender has never made available for lefties, don't get me started.

    I haven't gone down the guitarbuild route, they offer a variety of woods plus a lefty option :)
