I've looked at a few firms for necks.  If you go with Warmoth, make sure you get the vintage neck with heel truss adjustment, or new vintage, with headstock end adjustment.  That side heel adjustment on their "pro" necks looks like on over-engineered nightmare to me.  I'm looking for a 12-string neck and so far USACG is at the top of my list.

I'm thinking Musikraft would be good, they have the proper headstock...
