    1.5 for 4 string, 1.75 for 5 string! Anything wider than that and I have trouble.

    The SR4 (38mm nut), SR5 (45mm nut), and SR6 (54mm nut). They all have a very nice thin, and somewhat flattened backside; 19.5mm thick at the nut.
    Perfection! ;)
     
  7. everyones hands are different. for me I like different shape necks depending on how many strings the bass has. the more strings the thinner I like the neck to be. so its like.

    C for 4 and 5 strings
    ( for 7 string

    Thin nut thick neck, flat board
     
  9. I'm fine with almost everything. No hard V cuts and NO neck dive.
     
  10. Neck profile is not nut width and radius, it's the thickness and shape of the neck back.

    Thats only part of it, and because I can't remember which letters to use(different for each company) I decided to use common measurements I DID know:).

    I generally like moderately thick nuts (1.6-1.7"), thin, flat backs, and a small (preferably 7.25") fretboard radius.
