    Hey!

    So i have this 2008 Charvel SoCal MIJ. The neck is warped and beyond repair, the guitar itself is alright but its far from mint.

    Considering modding it to some degree and i want to start with the neck. Question is, does anyone know where i could find a neck that fits the cavity with a pointy or even banana headstock?

    I will tell you that charvel necks are ever so slightly wider at the heel. 2 1/4" instead of 2 3/16" Musikraft's custom heel size is the right size. they also do have bananas but not pointies.

    If the neck is twisted but still "straight" (not going left or right), you can find a luthier to take the fretboard out, work the surface an put a new fretboard in, which will probably cost the same as a custom neck. But if your neck is a one piece maple neck, you are f*cked.
    Maybe ask Charvel for a new neck...

    Your best bet is probably to go straight to Charvel, Warmoth and most other parts companies make necks to fit the Fender width (2-3/16") neck pockets, not the Charvel (2-1/4"). Or, shop Reverb and/or ebay for a Charvel neck.
