Anyone ever used these? Someone told me they were pretty good and the price was amazing. I wanted to do a Larger headstock for my Jazzmaster, but I am concerned there is not enough wood to make the larger Headstock.

It's not big enough to cut a Jazzmaster headstock but you can scale down the template
and make it work. That's what I did on this one.

Hidden: 






The necks are good for the price but not Allparts or Mighty Mite quality. Of course the GFS is half the price.
Does Allparts offer a paddle head neck?

I had one of their early glossy tele ones. It was cheap and shitty, and made the tele I put it on similarly cheap and shitty.
Allparts necks make the guitars you put them on feel like Fender Japan.

agreed. I hate them. they're way to flat and the finish just feels bad. I'm sure they'd be okay if you finished them yourself but a 12" radius just feels terrible.

I still prefer the truss in the base. I don't like it intruding on the headstock.

Same here. I've been studying neck build threads and videos this weekend.
I think I want to attempt a heel adjust neck build this summer.

check out tdpri.com section of build threads. They have a lot of guys over there who build necks from scratch and they have a lot of really good threads on how to do it.

Mine had a 9.5" radius, which I think lended to the cheap/offbrand feel.

Thanks for the input. I wouldn't mind taking a chance at $50, but I really want the bigger headstock and want vintage specs.

In the same vein, has anyone ever bought a neck from these guys:

Cheap? Offbrand? The radius on most strats (and more than a few Teles) are 9.5", genuine Fender parts

In the "Home Depot" section. In particular check out the neck builds of Jack Wells and Adirondack5 (Herb) Wink

the necks that come on their guitars are 12". so, unless they changed them recently or don't sell the same necks they use on their guitars, you probably played the 12" because it is really flat and makes the guitar feel cheap. Maybe not cheap, but it makes it feel like a piece of crap.

I've been curious about the "EDEN" necks selling on eBay...seem like they might be a better deal than the Guitar Fetish ones.

Dang! I didn't even catch that. I may snag one just to see what it's like.

I bought one of the replacement strat necks for my xaviere jm copy and its pretty great. The original neck was wayyyy too small for me, and I didn't dig the radius. The new one is baseball bat huge and slightly flatter in the radius department. I dig it.

i can also vouch for the EDEN necks i've picked up a few of them, the price is right, and they work fine.. they just happen to go on guitars that get tossed around a bit when we play, so i've broken a couple of them, HOWEVER having said that, they lasted longer then the OG Fender neck, and the Squier neck that i replaced it with first..

also, i no longer break guitars anymore.. it just got to costly, and i've become much less frustrated since moving to shortscales..
