Couldn't pass, crazy price if it's not twisted (description says all is fine except for the tip).

It's very nice and seems to be quality maple. The frets have some usage but cleaned up nicely. Now if I only had a body that fits :mrgreen 57mm neck heel, doesn't fit Fender.

I rescued this neck. I’m gonna make a replica of a slime green guitar that Dweezel Zappa had. Mine is a 2-1/4” heel width.

Yeah, that's the same heel width. Will probably need to widen the neck pocket a bit on some Strat body. Or remove the finish and oil it, that will remove like 1mm.

Looking forward to that Zappa thingy, sounds like fun :thumbs

Got my vote!

Tele would be cool too. Or a Model series body.

I have an HSS model series body somewhere if anyone needs it.
Bought it years ago thinking it would take a Floyd, but the post spread is different so I never used it.
It’s black, not perfect finish, but no wood damage.

Though I think the Dweezil or Jack Butler suggestions are a better way to go!
