I ordered a neck from StewMac and put it on in about 10 minutes.

 

It plays awesome! Way way better than the stock neck (still looking for a creative use for that...)

 

Here's a pic or 3.

Plays better? I wish I could just get a sunburst 69 and swap a maple neck in place, but I'd rather not have to deal with action/leveling the neck/making sure the neck doesn't interfere with tuning stability. Also the annoying warranty thing where Line 6 yells at you for any customization or personalizing of your JTV.

Boy does it ever! I haven't even had to make any adjustments and it plays well - it was setup as best as possible with the old neck and is pretty intonated with the new one. A couple of twists on the bridge fixed that!

 

Other than that, I had the issue with the high string slipping off.... even a not-yet-setup neck is better than that. 

 

For what, just north of $100 I am in a much better state.

Looks great but I have no idea what your decal says...  Which neck did you use? the 5716 standard or 5714 compound?  I am contemplating the compound radius but has anyone tried one?  any comments?

I've had a compound radius neck on my JTV-69 for almost two years.  Worked out smashingly well.

A few questions please:
 

1. How were the fret ends (edges)? Sharp, or smooth?

2. Did you have to shim the neck to make it fit?

3. Was the nut pre-cut? If so, were the string slots cut correctly for the bridge?

4. Did you have to drill the holes yourself?

 

Thanks!
Rich
