LP necks are virtually unchageable. Action is adjusted from the bridge. Stewmac does ship to Australia, and has plenty of pickup rings/pickguards/tuners/watever else you may need, and more. Id also get a new nut, like a Graphtec or Earvana nut. If you have the money, replace whatever you can other than the body and neck.

EDIT: Is your neck a bolt-on? I know LP-100s arent exactly hi-end, and LP Special IIs have bolt-ons. If its a bolt-on neck, you should be able to change it easily, but if its set-in, good luck w/out sawing the whole thing off.

its bolt on thank god :P



what exactly is wrong with your neck?

cause, you can adjust the bridge height/the truss rod, I highly doubt you need to replace the neck if all that's wrong with it is action.

Have you tried adjusting the action? I mean, a new neck is a pretty pricey thing to do if you can just have a guitar tech at a guitar store do a setup for you for 40 bucks... or better yet do it yourself.

the thing that is wrong with my neck is that a while ago when i was very young and very stupid, i didnt alter the action gradually, so now the neck is stuck because the truss rod cant be moved
