So, I have recently been gigging with a bass (I guess pigs can indeed fly), and have been playing a late 70’s Musicman Stingray. Unfortunately, the truss rod in the neck is broken, and is not an easy fix. I straightened the neck using heat and a jig I put together, and the neck is just about right, but I have to do the heat-and-adjust treatment every year. The only used replacement necks I have found are priced around $1000 or so, and even at this price they are not in great shape, most of them also seem to have broken truss rods. It’s a maple neck, no skunk stripe, so repairing the neck is probably not an option. But, I just picked up a beautiful Rosewood neck from a ‘78 Sabre. The neck has the same dimensions, and can be fitted easily, but the Sabre has a three screw neck plate instead of the six screw plate on the Stingray. It seems a shame to either drill out a nice Sabre neck, or an early Stingray body, and I am tempted to sell the Sabre neck and just “adjust” the Stingray’s neck as I have been doing. Any advice?
