Tele neck replacing advice

brojanglesbrojangles Frets: 124
Imagine you were really shallow and had grabbed a now discontinued 60s Baja Tele because you liked the faded sonic blue so much (and the pickups and switching and it being a Tele). But you found the neck fine but a bit meh.

What would be your best option for getting hold of a Tele neck with 1) rosewood board, 2) vintage radius and frets, and 3) a deeper, more hand-filling profile, along the lines of the neck on the Marr Jags?

    Wonder if mighty mite parts would fit and have something to taste. 

    Or you could have one built to you requirements if the rest of the guitar is really a keeper! 

    Keep the original aside just in case you decide to sell on, or sell it and put towards new if the new neck makes the instrument a full on keeper!
    The only easy day, was yesterday...

    I have a similar wish. I would like a rosewood board neck with 22 frets and a fatter profile like the 50's Baja tele.

    I enquired about a price from a pro builder. At around £700 it was too much for me. I keep looking and will be interested in the responses you get.

    I’d get something from Allparts. I’ve used several of their necks and they’re really well made, they come un- lacquered but I finished mine with TruOil, it’s easy to apply and feels great.
