    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.

    What's the nut width? I didn't see that on the spec. page.

    Thanks.

    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.
