Replace Variax 300 neck

Recommended Posts

I have tried to find a cheap replacement neck for my Variax 300. My frets are worn. I don't want to spend more on a neck then the whole guitar is worth. I was looking for a modestly priced neck that would fit even with a little modification. I have found very little real information anywhere. Warmoth necks are expensive. I read that a Squier Bullet neck would fit. I bought one on ebay. Well I can tell you that without some serious sanding it will not and even then questionable. Wasted my money. I will attach pictures. Is there another neck that will fit that isn't large $$'s? The Bullet neck has no fretboard overhang. It is also a little too thick. It is useful to me to have a spare Variax for my work and I'm trying to keep this cheap. See pix below. The Variax 300 neck is the lighter shade rosewood. Since the measuring tape is curved look at the left of the tape for the accurate reading. The Variax neck looks to be 29/32's of an inch thick measured from top of fretboard. The Bullet is 15/16's of an inch. It is also too wide and will not fit.

Thanks, if you can help.
