How much do the Status Graphite MMSR necks cost?

Postby Ben Esparza » Sun Dec 22, 2013 10:08 am

Just wondering if the price would be worth upgrading an SUB with if the SUB's neck has issues.

You have to go to their website and do the conversion. But, it's about $440 plus shipping and then about $20 in import duties.

While I have played status modded basses, I have yet to encounter anyone who said it was a drop in replacement. Much milling/fussing/shimming was always required in one way or another.

I'm having one built as we speak. I bought a P bass body off ebay and a Status fretless neck.
A friend in the UK has two basses (Warmoth bodies with Status necks) that he put together himself and said they just went together with no issues.

I think you have to drill & tap the holes into the neck heel to recieve the neck bolts.

Nothing...just looking at options. That's a lot of scratch for an inexpensive bass. I call that the "Thousand dollar saddle on a hundred dollar horse" analogy.

You know the old joke: How do you build a $300 parts bass? Well, first you start off with $500...

`
I have two MMs with Moses necks. One required
minimal fussing, the other took somewhat more.

Are they worth it ? I bought the necks used with
the tuners already installed, one having HipShot.
So to me they are waaaaay worth it.

New basses are red. Used basses are black.
