    Price drop! And for what it's worth, I will take trades. More to the point, I'll happily trade either of these for a '57-type P neck. You know the one: Maple board, C width, C shape, 7.25" radius.


    Couldn't edit my older post about these, so a new one it is. Which is fine, as I left some details out last time. Like the fact the Yamaha is a medium-scale bass!

    The bad: There's a slight hump in the neck around the 14th fret or so. I s'pose this is the dreaded "ski jump". Action's as low as I can get it, and it's very, very playable. Just not where I want it. And honestly, I've been jonesing for something more substantial in the neck, like a C Precision or something. So while it's a fine instrument, it just isn't meeting my needs.

    The good: Just had the frets leveled/dressed. New Neons installed. Sounds and feels awesome.

    As for the Jackson, no real issues. The neck is just a little on the flat side for me. Too bad, too. I like the reverse P/J setup, and being a rock bassist it befits me to play a rock bass.

    Both have Schaller strap buttons. Each selling for [DEL]$250[/DEL] $225 shipped.

    Here, have some photos:

    Each. I'll have to get back to you on the string spacing.

    ~19mm at the bridge, ~12 at the nut.
