    First off I do not own one, but it does match the price of a Warmoth build I am considering and I was curious. Since this is the only padouk chapman neck and the only bolt on neck in that line will replacements be available in the event of a break? If not, what is the neck pocket specs? Would a warmoth replacement padouk neck using fender specs be a direct fit?

    The neck screw patterns are notably different, and there is no telling how the neck pockets compare.

    Necks can be ordered without pre drilled holes so I'm not too concerned about that. Maybe the question I should be asking is about the availability of replacement parts for chapman guitars.

    I asked Anderton's this question about a year ago and was told spare parts aren't available.

    I bought a Mighty Mite Tele neck and fitted it though this was one of the original ML-1s.
