Spector is offering solid rosewood necks as an option on their USA bolt ons, and, as I'm currently GASing for a NS5-2H-FM, I was wondering what you guys think. I'm guessing that, unless they radically change something on the body, it wood really screw up the balance and have horrible neck dive, because rosewood is so heavy and everything. But, if it doesn't, i think that would be pretty cool, and feel a lot better than the regular maple necks, which I don't like much. plus, it would probably add loads of sustain. Even still, I'd be kinda hesitant to buy it, because the price list thing says that it's an extra $800. If it's the same list price to street price conversion as the bass itself, thats an extra $400+ dollars added on to a $1900 dollar bass.

Yea, that would add BRUTAL neck diving, but it would be pretty bad ass if it worked out, I think you should try it out if you can find one, or is it special order only?

Taking the piss out of Americans is like bullying retards, it's unashamedly one-sided but extremely gratifying.

I know Paul Reed Smith's favorite one of the guitars he made had a solid rosewood neck.

^ was it a PRS les paul copy? cause if it was, that might actually be reasonably well balenced, because I've heard they have "body dive"

It's special order only, as far as I know.

it was one of those Dragon ones that cost less now then they did new, even though they were limited edition. I believe.

true. that would be as reliable as an all maple bass for source...

or an equally weighty wood?
