Needed a inexpensive 5-string neck to convert an inexpensive tenor. Found a 22 fret electric guitar neck on ebay for $34. Just glued some maple to the heel and reshaped it.
Plan is to cut new slots in the nut for 5-strings instead of 6 and have a full length 5th string. Still waiting on tuners so I can't tell you how it plays yet.
I have attached 3 pics. One is the stock photo from the ebay ad, one shows the maple glued up, and the other shows the reshaped heel.
