I accidentally broke the headstock off my neighbors Vacarro 5 string bass (Don't ask...lets just say it was a late night session). Iím looking to replace the neck, but cannot find anyone who can get a 5 string Vaccaro neck. Anyone have any suggestions? Iím in the NY metro area.

I have been tracking Vaccaro basses for years now and I don't think I have ever seen anyone selling just a 5 string neck....a few years ago there were a few 4 string necks sold by a guy in PA but chances are you would have to buy a replacement bass...and those don't come up on ebay/craiglist very often.

Good luck and keep searching!

Uhh Drew,

I know you said don't ask but I couldn't resist. Consider it a public service warning to other aluminum neck owners like me. I am sorry for the loss (I think).

P.S. Good luck finding a new neck ( not sarcastic).

The neck can be repaired
the headstock is welded to the center t-bar inside the neck.
did the maple clamshell and fretboard break also?
