Just when I thought I wouldn't ... I did. I broke down and bought a Chinese neck ... a 22 fret maple Stratocaster replacement with the rosewood "skunk" insert. I must say I'm rather surprised. Level frets, no jagged fret ends, nice modern C shape and all the measurements are correct. No blemishes with a light satin finish. It's a very white looking maple not properly shown with the indoor pics. All this for $45 CDN ($35 US) delivered to my door step in 8 days. It was ordered out of China, but the order was shipped from a warehouse in Canada. Cheers, Barrie.
