    I know some of you cats know your jazz bass construction. Whats the depth of the face cut on the headstock of a jazz bass from the bottom of the fingerboard to the face of the headstock?
  2. On my squire VM fretless, it's about 5mm back from the bottom of the fingerboard, leaving the headstock 0.5" thick

    I measured 3 head stocks (a Jazz, P, and a Music Man) at 3/8 to 1/2 from the crown of the fretboard to the top of the head stock. The headstock thickness on all of them is 9/16
