    2- Fender Marcus Miller
    3- Warmoth Gecko 4-string
    4- Nordstrand J-bass neck
    5- .... -8... other basses...:bag:
     

  12. Funny, I thought someone would mention that when I was making this thread. But I figured, maybe, some people can't think of 10, and 5 is too little, so I chose whats pretty much in the middle.

    4. Fender Geddy Lee 4 (wish there was a 5)
    5. Spector Ledgend 5

    8. Anything flat or close to it...
     
  15. I personally feel that the flatter and thinner (from FB to back) the neck is, the better my technique is. Because it is easier for me to anchor my thumb on the back of the neck like I'm supposed to. On the huge, round necks, my thumb can't anchor itself so it curves around. But that's just me...

    4) Big chunky early 70's P or Telecaster

    6-8) I need some more experience with other stuff to pick more...I'm hoping I'll like my Warmoth '51 P5 a lot...
     
  19. Y'know, for all the criticism Warwick get about their necks, they're appearing quite frequently! :bag:

    For sure. I think a lot of the criticism is underserved. Yes they are chunky, but the way they are shaped (with a flatish back) makes them IMO very comfortable. I have played lots of C shaped necks that feel horrible compared to warwicks.
