I have been playing for 40 years and have owned many basses at various different prices and Warmoth can't be beat! I have owned a few of their necks and built two basses. As far as a Fender style bass goes Warmoth has no competition as far as quality and price go. Warmoth necks are simply the best. Fender has never made a neck that compares. Once adjusted it will not move due to the weather or anything else for that matter unless you put on different tension strings. Warmoth necks have a 1/4 inch fretboard unlike the paper thin fretboard on a Fender. For a third of the price of a boutique bolt on Fender copy costing over $4000 you will have a bass or guitar to your exact specifications. I wouldn't doubt that these boutique builders get their parts from Warmoth. Their customer service is great. I am planning to build a short scale bass and I can't tell you how many times I have called them and ask enumerable questions and they were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I have no idea how anyone can give Warmoth anything under 5 stars. To bad more businesses didn't operate like Warmoth. Sometimes there is a long wait up to 12 weeks, but quality takes time and their necks and bodies are worth the wait!
