    Just wondering what everyone's favorite neck is. I personally love the Fender Jazz necks. So easy to play. Also how important is a good neck to you. To me it is a MAJOR thing. It needs to feel good.

    I dig the new, unfinished (except for a dab of oil) StingRay neck. Smooth as a baby's behind.

    jazz neck, finished. The neck is definately the first thing that turns me on or off to a bass.

    it's a big thing for me...I address a bass on looks first (fickle I know, but if it's ugly I aon't bother getting it off the rack!) and then neck, before I even plug it in...if it doesn't feel good, the future ain't bright, to say the least...

    Favourite neck though? Kubicki, very comfy and playable,

    What was that quote...

    "I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands, I believe we place our hands round other people's necks" :smug:

    I really, really, really like the feel of the necks, and the tone ain't bad either...

    I like necks that aren't glossy. Glossy = bad.

    Fender necks are good for the most part. Surprisingly, my old Squier P-bass has the best neck i've ever played.

    I like P-bass & rickenbacker necks. Fat & comfy.
     
  15. ...now I couldn't get on with a Rickenbacker - the 4001's have got a GREAT sound :cool: , but I find them almost unplayable coz the neck is covered in paint/laquer and is a bit thick, the pickups are in the wrong place (and that bloody thing over the strings RIGHT WHERE I wanna start fingering... :crying: )

    ahh...glad I got that out of my system!

    They sound great but they aren't nice to play if you ask me
    (come on...I'm a Fender guy...) :cool:

    I find the jazz neck is great for quick movement all around. Verry good if you're into alot of quick fills
