Any way I can get a replacement neck for my 600? From line 6 or from someone with a spare neck somehow?

Open a Support Ticket in your account so the support are aware.

Just random chance I was by.

Thank you, does line 6 have replacement necks?

Don't know off-hand. Opening a ticket means that all the support people

will see it and so the right person can chime in.

 

Out here in the forum world, it's too random. A support ticket would put you

with the right people for this.

Ever since there was a small ding on a fret, I've been having problems trying to fix it out. I made that fret playable again, but it sacrificed having lower action on those strings. 

 

I could probably replace the neck but I thought it played amazingly before, and I kind of like the Variax and Line 6 decals on the headstock to show it's a Variax.

You can have frets replaced individually.  Just need to get a piece of the proper fret wire.  If you go replacement, I would go with something other than Line6.

I would need frets from 10 and up replaced, possibly leveled again to match the old frets.

a refret is likely in the area of a couple hundred bucks....

you could probably source a used 300 for around that and get a neck and a backup set of electronics...

or a transplant starter set :D

there's probably a few guys around these parts that made transplants and have necks laying around though..

Or go for an aftermarket neck like Warmoth.  Necks made for a Strat will fit fine and you can get anything you like that way for not much more than the cost of a refret.

If we do have one here, I'll be the one who'll check it and if needed,

level and dress it.

 

We'll see what there is here. Found one for someone a couple weeks ago.

It wasn't in a handy spot to grab. Have to search and see if there is another.

 

 

600 neck have a laminated fretboard. I don't see anything on the Warmonth site

in their neck section about having any with laminated fretboards.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I might try to level my current neck, but it seems hard. I suppose I can live with a different neck if it goes that route though. Anyone know if Warmoth can do a 24 fret strat style maple?
