    Before i get a Yamaha BB1500A what is the neck like? Im going to order a used one off the net, but i won't have a chance to try before i buy (I really hate that!) Is the neck on the bass really thin? Like a soundgear or Fender Geddy bass? (2 necks which are way to thin) A photo of the side view of a Yamaha 1500 neck would be great, and if u could compare the thickness of the neck to another bass out there that would be great!

    Many thanks!

    Email me and I'll get some measurements for you. The neck is similar in feel to a Precision.

    i second that. i once owned a BB1500a. neck is between that of a jazz and precision.

    THe tone is awesome for the price you pay.

    Go get it!
