Is that a tele headstock neck?

Schecter headstock. It's sorta tele-like but not all the way.

Neck. Vintage frets are awful, 7.25" radius is awful. The two together equal a guitar I'd rarely play.

What about getting the existing neck planed flatter and refretted? I know the cost would be similar to a new neck, but you said you love this one. The new one might not be as good.

yeah the neck was a good idea. Especially considering the deal I got on it.

But I'm likely gonna just use it on my tele build and leave my strat stock. I thought of re-radiusing and refretting it, but man, around here, it'd cost more than it would to just get a new neck. Like $350-400+

For that money I could just get a new USACG neck custom built to my specs and slap that on, and still have cash left over for hookers and blow.

All in all I don't mind the 7-1/4" radius and small frets. Action only has to be slightly higher.

My favorite guitar has a 16" though. huge grin

My big pet peeve is necks with sharp shoulders. Like my Smith era Strat.
