    Here is something you don't see every day!

    - 25 1/2" scale guitar neck. (mahogany / ebony, IIRC)
    - Drilled for Gotoh GB-7 tuners.
    - Nut cut for .128 / .100 / .080 / .060 strings.
    - Mother-of-pearl dot markers.
    - Finished in a very smooth satin finish.

    NOTE - This is a guitar neck and will fit a Fender guitar body. It is not a direct bolt-on for a bass body. You'll have to build your own body to make this work. Neck dimensions are available from Warmoth at http://www.warmoth.com/Guitar/Necks/faq2.aspx

    I ran it with heavy gauge (.128, .100, .080, .060) strings which effectively made it just like a 5 string bass capo'ed at the 5th fret. Provided a very-short-scale 4-string bass for my 9 year old kid. He has long since outgrown the bass.

    Full disclosure - the bass I made had a tubby sound. I don't know if it was the small semi-hollow alder body I made or the oil finish I put on the body. With a proper body I suspect the experiment would have been even more successful.

    SOLD $25 shipped con-USA.

    Nut width is ... (the crowd pauses in silent anticipation as Keith trots into the basement to gather the tape measure and the neck) ...

    1.75" at the nut.

    c-t-c string spacing at the nut is 1 5/16.
