    How would you guys describe Sadowsky 5-string necks? I have played, for comparison, an MTD 535, Warwicks, Ken Smith and StingRay 5.

    I know they are 34” scale and have full 19mm spacing in the bridge. I’m just wondering how is the profile: flat, thin, chunky, comfortable, etc.

    I think I have always read that they are somewhat meaty and chunky, but still comfortable. For example, I find a MTD 535 to be very comfortable (within basses with 19mm at the bridge) and of course, necks like a Smith or a StingRay are a breeze to play. On the other hand, Warwicks necks are awfully thick and chunky.

    Lastly, what is more comfortable, a Lakland 5-string neck, or a Sadoswky?
