...Not similar, but the exact same, dimensions and all. Music Man basses have great necks, and look and play great, but until they can start lining up the poles with the strings, I'll never consider another. I owned one that had the classic weak G string, and after looking at dozens of pics, at least 90% of them have poles that don't line up with the G string. To make matters worse, HH style basses' neck pups are even further off. The poles are so far off-centered that it makes me wonder if they're using the same exact pups in both positions, even with the tapered neck. For $1600+ I'd like to see some more precision. Pictured below is a 25th anniversary bass from their website with the problem, and pics I've seen often show the poles even further off than this. I don't understand why Music Man hasn't addressed this problem?
