Broken Truss Rod

Post: # 1410592Post PepeSilvia »

Hello everyone. I recently purchased a Mustang with a broken truss rod and I intend to replace the neck. Any recommendations as to where to buy a Mustang or Jaguar neck (other than eBay)?

It’s a 1994 Competition reissue.

Are you looking to specifically buy an actual fender produced neck or are you open to necks made to fit mustang's by other manufacturers?

BYO guitars makes Jaguar necks. Have no idea how good or bad they are. They also sell Allparts 7.25" Jaguar neck.
