    The question has been asked in the past, which 5 string to choose from Fender, the Roscoe Beck 5 or the American Precision Deluxe 5, but, that was in 2001. (see the following link)

    Roscoe Beck 5 or Precision Deluxe American 5

    I'm curious, if anyone has compared the Roscoe Beck V to the American Elite Jazz V... which has the better "B"? I've read that both are really good... thanks in advance!

    I’m curious as to how the necks compare .
    Anyone have experience with both ?

    The neck on the Roscoe Beck is like a neck from an MTD 535. It is really wide with full 19mm spacing and I think I remember the B string side being thicker than the G string side.
