    B Hefner Jazz Bass neck, Maple fretboard with black dots and binding. Slightly under 1 1/2" at the nut. Vintage radius, 7.25" I believe. Has been used but still in good shape, see pics. Bone nut, 70s style tuners, string retainer all included. This was part of a David Certain bass I had made for myself several years ago and I ended up putting a Precision neck on that body. I thought this one was pretty cool so I didn't sell it at the time but now I'm kind of moving away from 4 strings. $175 shipped to ConUS. Thanks, pics follow.

    Answers to a few miscellaneous questions:

    Fretwire - I believe jumbo fretwire similar to what you'd find on a 70s Jazz neck.

    Action - Have had it pretty low, because of my style/lack of technique (see user name) I usually raise it a bit from that point.

    Truss - Adjusts both ways, I have not needed to add a washer or other spacer but it could be done. There was no shim in the pocket when it was mounted.

    Finish - Came with sealer applied. I added a couple light coats of wipe-on clear satin poly and finished up with either Watco or Minwax furniture wax (not a car wax but a furniture finishing product).
