    What kind of bass is it? Sellers like Warmoth have all kinds of headstocks but they all use standard Fender heel sizes.

    Allparts and others sell a paddle headstock neck with a Fender sized heel. You can cut your own shape or configuration for the headstock.

    Incorrect. A huge part of Warmoth's business model revolves around Fender compatibility. To that end, they sell a variety of necks with different profiles, nut widths, numbers of frets, and headstock shapes that all bolt onto a standard Fender-spec body.

    In addition, they also sell necks and bodies in their higher-end "Gecko" line, which are not Fender compatible.
