Neck swap

Neck swap

Postby FatherGino » Sat Jul 16, 2011 1:48 pm

Does anyone know if I could swap the neck off of my '93 Sterling with any other Sterling in any PU configuration?

How about with a BIg Al?

I swapped a neck from an old 1H Sterling ... how old ?
well it had a recess for the neck plate ... how old does
that make it ? [beats me] with a recent model HS, and
everything went perfect.

BTW, the old 1H was also sorta "Lavender Pearl" ... in
case that helps date it.

Dunno from Big Al, but if BA will take the Moses neck
from my other Sterling, maybe a BA Cutlass be cool ?
I'd call it "Pirate Al's Cutlass". Aaahhrrrggghhh matey !

I want an unlined fretless HH or HS Sterling and the cheapest way would be to swap necks with a fretted one and keep or sell the resulting 1H fretted Sterling.

But Golem, Do I have a deal for you!! I'll trade you an 81, unlined, Hog, fretless L2K for your fretless Sterling HS.

Hey, it's worth a shot :)

2nd of all, I already have an '81 or '82 blank plank hog L2K [doesn't everybody?] !

and 1st of all, your neck swap intentions are exactly what put the Lavender Pearl
Sterling 1H FL in my hands. I had no intentions of ever keeping it, just took the
neck for my HS, and sold off the Lavender Pearl 1H as a fretted bass.

Sorry I couldn't bite on that transaction, but don't let that prevent you from any
future offerings of cool stuff.
