Has anyone here used them and what do you think of them? I have a Warmoth neck that I am very unimpressed with.

From what I've gathered, MM necks aren't suppose to be as good as Warmoth necks. As with everything, there are exceptions I suppose. Why are you not liking your Warmoth neck?

The steel support rods make it sound way too bright. I also dont like the 22 frets. Otherwise its made very well. When I ordered it they didnt have the 20 fret option or the graphite support rod option.

Wow, I didn't realize they made the 22 fret now. I wish you luck my friend. The other way is to eBay and look for a Fender neck you like...Good luck either way!

If its a maple fretboard and its not a finished neck it will sound super brite especially if its hard rock maple(most were made of this but not sure of yours)I have an ALL-PARTS maple on maple neck thats unfinished and it too is SUPER brite.
As far as the "steel rods" causing a overly brite tone I'm not so sure of,it should only have ONE steel rod and thats the trus-rod,there are dual trus-rod necks out there but they were usually on Rickenbacker's,I dont think Fender or thier lic part makers EVER had dual trus-rods,they do how-ever have graphite re-inforced necks which are wooden dowls wrapped in a graphite(how Its done I dont know)to allow for neck relief(or lack of) up and down the whole fretboard evenly.
So the culprit may be the un-finished aspect of the neck,its a possibility.

Only the Deluxe 5 necks have 22 frets.

The warmoth necks have two support rods running through the neck besides the truss rod.

Try shooting the neck with some laquer,UN-FINISHED necks are brite even WITHOUT 3 metal rods in them,Ricks have double truss rods and can be as woody and dull as a Gibson SB-1 bass,sounds like a combo of all the factors but a finish WILL help and some flats can too.

Ive played both warmouth and mighty might necks,
and found the warmouth to be way better.

MM necks are not as good as Warmouth. They cost less because of that fact. I've had MM necks. The guitar necks turned out better than the bass necks. I had an MM bass neck with a heel up and I had to dress the last 6 frets to make it playable.


I have never heard of rods in a neck making it sound brighter. If that's the case I want all rosewood necks with rods in them so they can sound a little brighter like a maple neck--- oh wait--- maybe I'll just get maple necks.

My warmouth neck is the best neck Ive ever played.
The MM neck was OK, but not in the same league.

I have another MM maple neck here that I got cheap used
but I haven't put it on a bass yet so I cant judge it at this time.

you could always send it my way and I can judge it for you by building a bass.
