    If I remember correctly, the aristocrat 1 bari has a modern style neck. From the way I see it, you have two choices.
    1. Order one that probably is the perfect measurements from Gloger Handkraft for circa 300 USD
    2. Buy a modern neck style neck and send it to a tech to get the tenon the right size, probably costing you about 200 USD

    Hi, Thanks for the answer but it is not a modern style neck, it has the octave key on it so a Gloger neck would be around 500 USD and it is too much for me....

    You are right Yedo, and the neck with octave keys are never easy to find or cheap , someon has either a bunch of them or he is trying to sell always the same one on Ebay but yes it is not cheap.......it should fit your horn

    A TT, 'Crat 1, Big B, 129 all use the same neck. Same tenon size as the bundy/signet/400 necks, but significantly shorter in overall length.

    Nothing works so well in gathering information as a display of ignorance. I've been learning a lot lately.

    Thanks for the answer, I already check it out and the seller said it would not fit my Bari and also the octave key is quite closer to the mouthpiece than a buescher old neck...I think it might have a bad influence on the tuning.

    So, I've tried many necks,2 glockers made for that Baritone, a original Buescher true tone that looks exactly the same as mine and nothing was sounding any better than mine, the guy from Blazersatelier.nl was very nice on the phone and I almost went there but after trying all this necks and my one with all this dents sounded better I just stopped to look around and stayed happy with my ugly beast and my money on my pocket. (I love when this happen!!!!)
    Thank you all for the nice tips

    No. It doesn't have an octave key on it.
