    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but who is the seller on EBay that will make custom necks? I'm thinking of having a baritone conversion done on one of my bolt-ons

    Not sure if there's one on eBay, but you can certainly get them from Warmoth.

    They assume that you're starting with a 25.500" scale on the guitar, and offer a conversion neck which takes it to 28.625", with all the placement of frets and build set accordingly.

    Yep, for bolt-ons the places like Warmoth are best.

    Well, the guitar(s) in question would be Epiphone Special models...not sure that Warmoth would do a neck to fit that

    You'll have to measure your neck then, and see what dimensions the pocket is.

    I can do that. I'll look into what I can get done at Warmoth. Thanks for the replies! :)

    Warmoth has a couple of LP styles which are bolt on, so check those types first.
