I use to have an AVRI '56 Strat and really liked the fat soft V neck a lot but wasn't in love with the vintage frets so I sold it and I kind of regret it now. Today I was contemplating building my own '56 Strat and was thinking perhaps an MJT body and a Fender thick V neck with bigger frets. Looking around on eBay I found several Fender '56 Strat necks with 9.5" radius and 6105 frets. However, they're all made by the Fender Custom Shop and we all know CS parts go for a premium. But I was shocked to see them going for $1300 - $1400. And believe it or not, looking at the completed listings, people actually pay those prices! Don't get me wrong, they look amazing; Roasted maple, lacquer finish and relic'd. So maybe it's just me but that seems insane to pay that much for a neck, even if it is made by the Fender CS. So I have a couple questions: 1.) Do you think you "get what you pay for" and a Fender CS shop neck is the way to go? 2.) If wanting to go another route, what after-market neck would you recommend that comes close to these '56 Custom Shop necks available on eBay?
