Jackson Replacement Necks (http://www.guitarshopsupply.net/product_info.php?cPath=25&products_id=154)

Has anyone tried these necks? I am looking for a replacement for my DXMG and the price is right, just not sure about the fit, playability and workmanship.
Thanks,
-Sol

These also sell on E-bay under the name TNT Guitars. The Specs on the neck are as follows:

JACKSON STYLE NECK, NEW, MAPLE WITH A BOUND ROSEWOOD FRETBOARD.
HEEL WIDTH IS 2 AND 3/16.
NUT WIDTH IS 1 AND 11/16"
24 JUMBO FRETS
SHARKFIN PEARLOID INLAYS
FLOYD ROSE NUT ROUTED
25 1/2" SCALE
SIDE DOT MARKERS

Any ideas on whether this will fit on a DXMG?

Thanks,
-Sol

not sure, but interesting that they're bound. that's pretty cool. i'm pretty sure they're mighty mite necks (they sell a lot of their stuff). judging by the smaller overhang, it should be a true 24 fret neck.

Yeah the binding is nice, especially for the price. I've never seen a Mighty Mite neck with 1-11/16 Nut and binding. Guess I'll just buy one and see if it fits. /images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Jackson STYLE necks. The "STYLE" scares me off (fit / finish issues?).

Good luck, let us know if it works.

i've got a MM jackson style neck. it's not too bad. a little thinner than i'd prefer, but it's fine.

i'm with Don, whenever something says "style" it worries me a bit.

I have one, i bought because I had the body laying around and needed a 24 fret neck cheap
I was truly surprised on the quality of the neck and the fretwork

See Jackson has the "Jackson" neck pocket. I'd be worried these necks won't intonate properly because of the neck being too far forward or back.

i hear ya don, but usually the 24 fret necks that i've seen have a retarded-long overhang, and this one seems to be in proportion to a true 24 fretter. if the price is right, it could be a decent pick up.

Thanks for all the input guys. I'm going to go ahead and pick one up. I'll let you know how it works out.

the heel is correct for a jackson 24 fret body (that was the reason I bought this particular neck)

I've got one as well, I too was suprised at the quality. I have yet to string up the guitar it is going on as it is in the refinishing stage. The rosewood on mine was pretty light. A little Stew Mac fretboard stain took care of that though. The inlays have a highly figured look to them just like the pic too.
