    Hi all - I have a Yamaha RBX375 and like the 25+" radius fingerboard. Does anyone make a mass produced P bass with relatively flat radius neck? Bonus points if it is a 5er. Even more bonus points if it has a 3-2 or 5-0 headstock. The 4-1s just look wrong.

    Lacking that, am I stuck looking at a squier or low end fender and getting a neck from elsewhere? (Warmoth?) Or would I have to go custom from somewhere like Carvin?

    Sadowsky & Lull, but they've got a 4+1 headstock

    Thanks for the suggestions. Carvin seems like the best option, since Sadowsky and Lull are probably outside my budget.

    Or I could just get over the preference for flat radius...

    I was also going to say Carvin.

    Are you sure about the RBX radius being that flat? I have owned a couple and I don't think they were anywhere near that flat. I am pretty sure they are a 10" radius.
