Basically, I have a Harper with a pretty thick neck. I'm used to it but it feels clumsy and massive.
My friend has a Dean, I've played it a couple of times and it feels awesome, it's like playing a cloud, barely any effort needed.

Now, my parents want to but me an amp for Christmas but I have to put some money in too. I will have a total of 145 Euros (182 dollars, 115 pounds), part of that going towards the amp.

I haven't got much experience at all aside from changing strings.

Looking for a neck + head + fretboard between 0 and 70 Euros (88 dollars, 55 pounds) preferably a Gibson or Jackson, with a symmetrical head if possible


Any advice, tips, anything I need to know?


Much thanks!

Get a better budget.

You aren't going to get a really nice neck for that sort of money, unless you are lucky enough to find a decent 2nd hand one.

You need to know what size your neck pocket & scale length is too before you start looking for a neck.

May be able to spend more, I don't know yet.

OK, might have a look on eBay UK, only checked eBay France so far and it's practically empty.

Neck pocket, OK but what's the scale length?


Thanks, man!

No. From the nut the 12 fret, and then from the 12 fret to the bridge.


For example, Fender uses a 25.5 inch scale length, Gibson somewhere around 24.75 inches.

If the your scale length is off, the distance from your nut - 12th fret and 12th fret - saddles will not be equal. They need to be equal for proper intonation.
