    Popped up on my email and made me curious- new necks from China, $16.89 shipped

    Ordered one just out of curiosity, not expecting much....

    good learner project, (unless you already know) :) I'm sure it can get good with a new nut and a fret job, can't beat that price

    The feedback is mostly from one buyer. Still may not show, but ebay buyer protection makes it pretty safe.

    I grabbed one to see if I can make it usable. I have a loaded body just laying around so why not? I got the non-scalloped version.

    That's what I figured too. I ordered 2 of them for the 2 orphaned bodies I have here.

    I'd like to know how they are. I've been thinking about ordering them to do 5 and 6 string cigar box guitar builds.

    I looked at the Tele necks and for some reason, they have blurred markings on these necks in the pics, as if trying to hide some manufacturer's information. I also note that their Tele necks have rounded Strat heels, so they have got that wrong right off the bat.

    Then I looked at a nicer Tele neck this supplier offers said to be made from Canadian maple (below). These necks have the Donlis logo on the photos. Donlis is a legitimate pickup and guitar parts supplied found on Ali Express. I seriously doubt these cheap necks are Donlis products. I think this is a scammer putting up pictures of other peoples products and trying to make a quick buck before Ebay catches on.

    I just got a tracking number for the 2 necks I ordered. Maybe they'll actually show up eventually.

    Were your necks from the same supplier as linked by Pflug in the original post? If so, can you post photos? If not, where did you get yours? Thanks!

    Any info on nut width, neck radius? I can't find anything from the eBay link.

    I took a chance on it when I ordered because so cheap. I don't know the measurements but with my luck, it will show up as one of these necks....LOL

    Mine does have a valid tracking number so I hope what comes in the package is something usable. I will post pics when I get it too.
