I used to own an ASAT and loved the sound, but I had to trade it because my left hand would cramp up something awful whenever I played it. Very weird, hadn't happened to me on any bass before or after. The ASAT has the #8 neck http://www.glguitars.com/options/options.asp And I'm a '72 Jazz Bass guy, so I'm used to the 1.5" nut width... The neck was just too thin (front to back) for me. Maybe the radius too. Is the #6 neck more like a vintage jazz bass neck? (thicker, front to back?) Has anyone else had this problem and switched to the #6 neck? The only problem I can see is neckdive. The ASAT with the #8 was so perfectly balanced (unbelievable for a tiny body like that), that maybe the #6 would add too much weight. Maybe a L2000 with #6 neck is the sweet spot?
