    For what it's worth, I knew and it's still 1.75 or 1&3/4. Your measuring the manufacturing tolerance, which is actually pretty good for a wood shop. Most people would not know the difference not would a sane person specify an order this way. Beautiful bass BTW. Your gonna regret this sale.

    Agreed 100%. However, believe it or not the neck feels narrower when I swap back and forth between my other Ps with a “true” 1.75” nut.

    And I’m already considering pulling this one back down, again lol. If I don’t see movement on it by the end of the week it’s likely getting marked as unavailable once again.

    I love this listing. Great pics. Always wanted to try a Roasted ‘58 RI. However, my urge for self-preservation is strong and I really never play my wider-necked Fenders. (Somehow though, I think this one could pull me back to the wide side.)

    GLWTS! There is no lack of interest in this beauty!!

    Do the tuners cover all holes on the back of the headstock?

    The Gotohs are direct drop in replacements for the vintage style/size Fenders.

    They really are. I’ve got them on all of my
    vintage style Fender basses. Super light, higher ratio, much smoother operation.

    Reinstalled the OEM tuners, and thus price dropped a bit.

    Opened up for a couple partial trade options too.
