The answer is no.
BaCH quit making the BaCHbird several years ago.
And all stock they had, is gone meanwhile.

BTW. They never sold the necks separately to begin with.
Your best chance would have been the barebones version of which they had (only) a few.

It takes a very deep-rooted opinion to survive unexpressed

Perhaps the best option is to work with necks that you CAN acquire...?

As far as I know that guy on Ebay also offers to make necks from African Mahogany, which is what BaCH used for the BaCHbird necks.

He built me one.

Needed a maho neck for an EB3 project bought off eBay (seller claimed it had ´the typical´headstock repair, turned out to be a cut down maple bolt on neck - long scale! ..with the original fretboard glued on top).

Neck was african mahogany, impressed with both how it sounded (can´t tell a difference) and fitted (almost no modification/sanding needed on the heel before glueing)

So at least for me, he seems to know gibson necks well. All i had to do was shape headstock, inlay it, mount trussrod, glue down trussrodstrip, glue on fingerboard, and paint. Easy fix, as they say :)

Didn't the early Bachbirds have a maple neck?

Maybe the Series I did. I don't think the thin Series II or later IIIs had maple necks.

Yes the first series did not have a mahogany neck. I'm not sure if it is maple
