Just ordered this neck for my tb2 while the original neck gets spruced up.
It comes flat cut for a 5/8 bridge needing flange cut and co rod lags drilled.
where the flange isn't a precision fit I look for an easy job of it.
275/no tax and bound with nut.

When I get my first cell phone I'll get some pics and sound from it.

Late Christmas!

It showed up right on time and I must say this is a lot of neck for $275.
Modified RB-3 inlays,slim peghead thickness,a volute of which I was prepared to forego.
Maple with a mahogany stain ready for lacquer.

Dead fret and 12" radius frets with their ends over the binding and ends dressed comfortably..Neck a tad wider than standard.

I was going to use my conversion's neck for a heel pattern,but that neck is cut for an 11/16" bridge and new neck is based on a 5/8 bridge so I'll use my "Fox" banjo neck for a heel "master".
That's also a Jimmy Cox neck that he made for Bob French.

All I need now are the 2 lag/bolts.
I took a neck to Jimmy one time that needed co-rod lags drilled and he held the neck on its side on top of the workbench with one hand and an old metal case hand drill in the other and drilled those 2 holes in about 10 seconds.
