The truss rod in my jazz bass has been stripped, so I will probably end up getting a new neck. The guy at my local music store said that the new neck doesn't have the fender logo on the headstock. Is this true? Also, how much will this cost to get a new neck?

Thanks.
w/o bass n drums, there wouldn't really be rock music.

Schecter is pronounced 'Shek-ter', right? I don't want to walk in and say, "Hey, can I try out that Sketcher?" and have the helper reply with "Wtf, we don't sell shoes!"

Before you go for a new neck, take it to an independent luthier for a second opinion. When the truss rod stripped on my Spector I just got a cap put over the end of it. Saved quite a bit of money.

How are we meant to know?

Depending on who/where you get it from, it can be anything from £80 to £150.

My apologies. I just thought I'd share some of my own experience and hopefully stop you from spending more money than you should.

Most replacement necks don't have company logos on them (Fender or otherwise). If you buy off eBay, you could get a used neck from an actual Fender bass with the logo on it. If you're buying a replacement from allparts, warmoth, stewmac, etc. or a store, it probably won't have the Fender logo or any other markings on the headstock. You can buy waterslide decals to apply to a blank headstock if the logo is really that important to you though.

You can get a new Jazz replacement neck for as little as around $140-$150, or you can pay upwards of $400-$500. It all depends on where you buy from.

LOL

Dude, this guy is trying to help you. It sounds like he might be selling you a Mighty Mite neck, I believe that's Fender's go to replacement company. GFS has cheaper similar quality necks, Warmoth has better quality super expensive necks. Fender doesn't make replacement necks, nor do they license others to put their name on necks.

OR you could take Fleajr's advice and get a free second opinion and see if you can get a cheaper better fix. If this was your leg you wouldn't get it cut off without getting a second opinion....

I only recently realized fleajr is flea jr. and he's not from norway or some other Scandinavian area

Well it doesn't look like you are open to much advice, but neither of your two questions have set answers. If you do need a new neck, I would suggest ordering one from a website like Warmoth .
You can very specifically build your own neck or choose from their pretty decent stock.

I'm looking to build my next bass from their parts.

Dude--you know arguing with a mod is really not the way to make points and influence people. Just saying.

Go out to google and do a search for a good luthier / repair person. We are trying to save you some cash here. If you aren't interested, go back to your music shop spend some useless cash on a useless item and call it a day.
