    Are there any other basses in existence that have a neck similar to my fat necked Warwick Corvette $$ 5?

    Oh darn. I'd reccomend the Fender mike dirnt.

    But its a C shape and warwick is more of D shaped.
     
  5. I'd assume so.
     
  6. CV tele really is the only thing I've ever played that's close to a warwick neck. Really warwick reins supreme with thick necks.

    My 75' Fender P bass feels like a Louisville slugger .
     
  8. my 2005 rickenbacker is super chunky. i love that neck so much because it stays almost exactly the same size all the way up to the last fret.

    My Spector bolt-on has a neck comparable to my Thumb... I'd daresay it feels a bit chunkier. Killer tone too - actually gets pretty darn close to my Thumb's tone when I dial it in.

    My Cort Artisan 5 has a baseball bat of a neck. Its the only reason I want to sell it.

    The largest fiver neck I've played was on the Warwick Streamer Stage I 5. Running a close second is the Benavente 51 Model fiver.
     
  15. if you like short scale, my gibson sg reissue has a great beefy neck.

    It is, especially the 5 string. It's not exceedingly wide at the nut but it's very round in the back.

    I've always said that a EBMM SR5 with a warwick neck and warwick electronics would be my dream bass.

    it doesn't exist.

    As I understand it, Wish basses have some mighty thick necks.

    Warwick FNA 5. Even more versatile than a Stingray. But now if the body shape is the problem...well I can't help you there!

    Wishbass (all one word!) vary, but generally they are on the thicker side of scale.

    Here's a comparison photo I took:

    Right to left: Warwick Thumb, Wishbass, T-Bird, P Bass.
