Yes, you're right access denied to the marketplace. According to the rules I appear to be 20 posts short of access to the marketplace. I've gotten by since 2016 with the hammered brass neck, a little longer without the red brass will be fine. I guess unitl I achieve marketplace status I will check out eBay. Thanks for the help.Here ya go: https://www.saxontheweb.net/forums/sax-necks-and-other-parts-wanted.435/
You may not yet have access to the Classifieds/Marketplace. You’ve certainly been ‘round long enough, but are low on participation (see the section regarding access).
Thanks for the feedback on the XO-2089 necks. The marketing material on the XO-2089 refers to the 2nd neck as "red brass for a richer darker tone" vs "hammered brass for a brighter tone". The description of the red brass neck makes it appealing. But if there is no perceptible difference in sound then I won't pursue finding a red brass neck for my XO-2089. Unless perhaps if I find one at a reasonable price.The red brass neck sounds a bit different but not by much. Jupiter had a variety of different necks 10 - 15 years ago. The most difference makes the nickel plated brass neck or if there is additional weight added on the neck like the heavy I or II version. Obviously they have all the same inner dimensions and this much more critical than different material. I played them all on my XO-2089. I still prefere the original brass neck. Don't expect a massive change of sound.
Thank you for the reference on vendors of Jupiter parts. I'll see what comes from my inquiry.Contact KHS America, they have Jupe parts but are running out of parts for older models

Thank you for your feedback.I had a couple of 2089 models. One had two necks but I remember the only difference was the finish. No change in shape or taper, so they sounded the same. I tried one with a solid silver neck from a 989 I had, too. Same result.
