    Hey guys, I need your help!

    Aside from reliablefender on Ebay. Where else can I find CIJ Fender necks?
    I found the one that I wanted last night, but I acted too slow, someone bought it. :(

    I'm searching for a '68 reissue with rosewood.

    Thanks!

    Does it have to be CIJ?

    I do have a '66 RI CIJ that has a very nice maple neck. I wanted a rosewood. Like the picture above. I don't think that a MIA neck would fit, and I'm not sure if I can find one, except for a CS version. :confused:

    Good point. If you are just wondering what is available, perhaps take some very precise measurements and then contact places like Allparts and Warmoth to see what they recommend. Just a thought.

    Rest assured the Allparts or Warmoth parts would be of BETTER quality than the original Fender neck. Just make sure they fit, that's all. You should use a set of dial calipers for the measurements.

    He usually has one up, there will be another. What happened to the heavy relic? That was a sweet guitar.

    I know! I almost lost the GAS when I just decided, my CIJ '66 is a beautiful guitar, but if I can atleast make it look a bit like the CS relic. Maybe, I'll just be happy until I find a used one on Ebay, but now that I missed the CIJ neck sale on Ebay, I'm starting to have bad GAS about the relic again! :cry:

    Interesting. I asked reliablefender 2 questions on Sunday and never got a reply back either.

    I was just asking if there's a possibility of having another or if it was actually sold, but NOTHING.

    He finally sent me a quick note today, saying. "Sorry, we don't have".

    The thing that I'm worried about this part is that. I didn't even know that it actually exist. I'm not sure how I did a search, but one day it popped! The same day that I did an exact search, it won't even show up on the search, even though, I've already saved it as an "item I'm watching". Weird.

    I really wanted that neck. :(

    The Allparts is a good fit on a MIJ ~CIJ body

    If I do Allparts, I also want an actual '68-69 Fender decal. Do they do that?
