removing the neck is not difficult. i personally would use two pieces of "scotch" tape,
one on the heal of the neck, and one on the body, and use a marker to make alignment marks to match back up when reassembling the bass. you could do this on the sides also, just make sure it goes exactly back where it was originally. i have removed the neck on my Hwy 1, no big deal. good luck.


Yeah, plus with the neck plate on the Jazz 24, you'll have to worry a little less about tightening the screws.

It might cost you a few bob, but you can always get it professionally removed here and professionally installed when you get there. Hell, finding a place wherever you're going might be an adventure all by itself.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

At this point I'd rather just drop $250 on a good flight case and make sure I have a bass when I get there
Removing and re-installing the neck is pretty straightforward; however, if you need the warm and fuzzy by going with a flight case, it'll definitely be worth it.

I think Ippon won this one.

Get it if you are worried.

Ippon you win the thread. I have to go back east next summer and I know what I'll be buying before hand. Great find.
