I've noticed a few posts recently where people have mentioned there dislike of any kind of gap at the neck joint between the body and the neck itself. I've heard people speak of gaps ranging from credit card widths to fractions of a business card, and no matter what the size, they'll always frowned upon. I have played basses with and without gaps and honestly haven't noticed any tonal difference. Gap or not, the instrument has always been stable, and sustain wasn't noticibly effected. I thought about it for a while, but wasn't really able to come up with anything. Is this simply an imperfection that some frown upon (no one wants a flaw in a new bass), or is supposedly more to it than that? Let's hear it!
