    Hello,
    I have a squier CV 50 strat and I would need to replace the stock high gloss neck with another one. Generally, I can't stand the sticky necks.
    Is there anyone that could suggets to me an online sites located in North/Central Europe (UK,Italy, France, Germany, etc.) where I can buy a good neck with reduced shipping charges?
    I'm looking for a good quality neck as like as the Warmoth's necks at a reasonable price.
    I found www.northwestguitars.co.uk on the net, but the neck prices seem very low to me.
    Is there anyone who has experience with them?

    thanks

    I have dealt with Northwest guitars for some parts but never necks or bodies, their service has been excellent and their products good for the price.

    have you thought about sanding or stripping the gloss off and using an oil like tung oil or tru-oil and a wax to make it slick-er

    check out this guy on youtube... its not that hard...

    Lightly sand the neck with gray scotchbrite until the desired satin finish is achieved.

    North West Guitars are good, I'll vouch.

    They are also based about 10 minutes from my house lol. I only found out AFTER I'd placed an order online and paid for shipping!

    CV's have really good necks and as I've explained before on this forum, you dont just 'buy a replacement green neck', they require a lot of setting up and fret dressing etc. Just sand it dude...its a great neck already!

    I think someone was trying to insult me. But I really can't be insulted

    That's good, but what precipitated the whole thing? New member asking for help, then all of a sudden, insults. That's not the norm here so it got my attention.

    I don't think he liked the video I posted of the guy sanding the neck and oiling it
