Looking for Nitefly next or neck repair
« on: July 13, 2018, 09:31:10 AM »
I just sold a Southern Nitefly and something nasty happened in shipping. 

The fretboard sheared slightly from the main body of the neck.  Not sure if the board lifted significantly or not but theres a definite crack along the seam of the fretboard.
So I need to replace this neck pronto or get it professionally repaired.

I would appreciate any suggestions for master repairmen who could tackle such a job or if anyone has a dead Nitefly with a good neck or just a spare neck, I would appreciate an offer.

Thanks,
Patrick

Did it get really hot in transit?

If I have good results with one I’m about to try fixing soon, I could try fixing this one.

Hey Billy.
I have no idea.  I shipped it with Fedex.  For all I know it could've been left to roast on a tarmac for a couple of hours and then been dumped from the loading ramp from 15'.
The neck was immaculate when it left here and "lifted" when it arrived.

Let me know how your project turns out.
