    I have heard of Fender having "c" and "d" necks, But I tried a jazz down at a local music store, and the neck felt for all the world like a geddy neck (without the silly binding and ugly big square inlays)...the fellow at the shop told me it was a "b" neck, and that Fender also makes "a" necks...which are even thinner....can anyone tell me how rare these necks are? Should I jump on this one? It's the ONLY fender I've tried (aside from a geddy) on which I liked the neck....Thanks kindly for your input...and have a great christmas.

    But..but...I LOVE the silly binding and big ugly inlays on my Fender...well until now....I guess I'm just going to have to get rid of it and find something without those silly big ugly things:(

    A= 1.5 inch width at the nut
    B= 1.62 inch width at the nut
    C= 1.75 inch width at the nut

    Thickness front to back can vary among models and is not designated to my knowledge, at least on basses.
