Really enjoy the purchase experience from Nello. He's rarely out of stock and I've found his items competitively priced but considerably better quality than the stuff that he nominally competes with out of China. Great service and follow up when required too. Definitely buy with confidence.
Also had great experiences with Guitaraust!
I use Guitaraust all the time, and I concur that they are FANTASTIC to deal with! They ship items quickly, are reasonably priced, and always respond very promptly to emails and questions. Yes, they tend to not stock really high end stuff - and it goes without saying, if you want high end stuff, you pay high end prices. But I have always found the quality of Guitaraust stuff to be absolutely fine.
With respect to buying things like necks, it is always a little tricky online, as you can't ever see exactly what it is like, let alone touch it. It is quite common to have to sand a neck a little bit to to get it exactly right in the pocket.
I have bought a neck from Guitaraust - nothing wrong with it. Its profile was a little thicker than I liked, so I shaved it down a bit with files and sandpaper, and it now feels and plays fantastically! But other people may have liked the thicker neck.
I think if people really need a neck that is truly "drop in", with no work whatsoever involved, it behooves them to ask a lot of questions first - every guitar, even a factory made one, is slightly different - and you can't just order any old neck with a Fender shape and assume it will drop in.
I have NO hesitation in recommending Guitaraust to anyone looking for guitar supplies. They are great.
I dont know the issues others have had with the guys at Guitaraust but I thought I would throw my hat in the ring. I have spent over $200 with these guys and [name removed] has always been a joy to work with. Prompt response to any queries and more than happy to provide advice and suggestions. Its not the sellers responsibility if they purchase the wrong item being a consumer is about making informed choices.
Anyway highly recommend these guys!
friendly, helpful and very prompt
Poorly, china made guitar necks
I needed a replacement neck for my guitar and I made the mistake of cheaping out and buying from guitaraust.com.au. It's an absolute piece of junk and does not even properly fit my fender telecaster body. Problem is, I already got someone to work on fitting the neck to my guitar, I can't return it at this point. I just want to warn people not to go through this company. Don't cheap out.
poorly made piece of junk
