    Default WTB Explorer Neck

    Howdy,

    Working on an Explorer project. Going to make my own body but need a neck. Finding an actual Gibson set-neck seems near impossible but if you have one, give me a shout.

    Totally ok with a bolt on. Would be very happy to find one of the older Warmoth models like this:

    Not interested in the new Nomad headstock design from Warmoth. Thanks!

    For what it's worth I think the Wamoth "Slapshot" hockey stick shape looks great on an Explorer, more like a Hamer or ESP.

    You could try contacting Precision Guitar Kits to see if they'll sell you a loose neck, or get a hockey stick neck from Musikraft or Warmoth, and just glue it in (with or without notching a tenon into it), then add a heel extension and blend it in to the existing neck yourself.

    Well, why not? It was a good Warmoth Explorer neck with a rosewood board...

    I guess the other option is getting that nomad neck and just routing off that little nib
