Univox Hi Flier Phase II HELP!

Post by HILFYER226 » Sun Jun 23, 2019 9:11 pm

Hey, everyone!

I'm new to the forum and looking for some help.

I'm rebuilding a Univox Hi Flier Phase II, but alas.... I don't have a neck. With that said, I'm looking to buy if anyone is selling. Otherwise, any helpful guidance on next steps or how to make a 25'' scale work; move bridge back?

Wish Eastwood Guitars made replacement necks...

Keep an eye out on reverb and ebay, usually there's at least one up there. I can't find any right now, but one will pop up with time. If you wanted to put a longer scale length neck on there, yeah you'd have to move the bridge back, but also sand the heel of the neck down quite a bit. The nice thing about phase 1-3 Hi Fliers is there's no big bushing holes or anything for the bridge, so it would be fairly easy to move the bridge back, and you wouldn't have huge ugly holes left over. I would highly recommend getting an original neck for it though, even if it means waiting.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I'll probably hold out for an original neck. I have a phase 1 custom and plan out modding It with a new bridge and pickups.

I'll take those old parts and toss them in this phase 2 build.

Right now, I'm just looking to get a neck and pickguard.
