    Forgive me if this doesn't belong here,

    I'm looking into a warmoth bass. A Jazz Body, with the 24-fret extention.

    Here's my problem.
    Will I be able to reach the 24th fret easily? Because I see Warmoth doesn't do contoured heels on basses. Anything i can do?

    Also, does Nino do 24 fret 4-strings?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Yes, we do contoured heels on basses, but no, you can't easily get to all 24 frets on those necks. Because of the 20 fret neck joint and the shape of the cutaway you really have to reach over the body quite a bit.

    Brian, what about on the G4 body?
