    Albert Lee SSS with Rosewood Neck?

    Hi All,

    I bought an Albert Lee HH a few months ago with the full rosewood neck and really like how it feels, plays, and sounds. And the bodyís shape is growing on me! Thinking about acquiring an SSS model and it seems the SSS is made with only a maple neck, and I really donít like maple. Iím considering finding an SSS to my liking and then buying another HH with a rosewood neck to swap necks with. Iíd then probably sell the other HH with the swapped maple neck. Thoughts? Has anyone done this? Or is is possible to find an SSS model with a rosewood board?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nice Alberts!
    I did a neck swap on a pair of Luke IIIs and it was a perfect swap.

    Indeed! But is it stock or the result of a neck swap?

    There have been a few limited runs where rosewood necks were offered on the AL sss - there are quite a few of them out there.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    Thanks! The white one was the result of a neck swap with another forum member who wanted a maple neck for his HH.

    It's pretty sweet. Those RW necks really are slick.

    Yes, they sure are. Thanks for confirming it was a neck swap. Need to give that some serious thought.
