I'm going to be in Italy for a month playing music and will be renting a bass. I'm corresponding with someone there right now trying to arrange for this. I want to specify a D-neck. But they don't seem to be familiar with the differentiation. I've heard D is French, Eb more German...but how about Italy? If I end up with an Eb neck, it's not going to be the end of the world, but does anyone have thoughts on how to best explain this in precise terms (measurements)? Or does anyone know if there's a standard in Italy? Thanks, Todd.
