    Hi, Has anyone got any idea about the neck on the
    Les Claypool Carl Thompson 4 string bass? (the one with the one EMG pickup). The neck looks really thin!! and the strings look very close. Is there any
    Production line bass out there that has a neck similar to the CT 4 string? (Spector? Warwick?)

    Before you say it, I know it's probably best to e-mail Carl Thompson direct, but i thought i would ask you guys/girls first.

    Thanks.

    I believe that bass started it's life as a piccolo bass. That would explain it's narrow neck.
