    I'm considering putting a headless Moses neck on my bass, but I want a wider nut than what seems to be availabe (1.52"). I'm looking for something a bit closer to a P nut spacing, around 1.625". Know of any available, or somebody who could make one?

    If custom is an option, <a href=http://www.kingbass.com>David King</a> is a luthier who only (as far I know) does headless basses. I don't know what the situation is on whether he'd do just a neck, or if he does graphite, but it's worth a try. Other companies you might consider who do graphite stuff are Zon, Status, and Steinberger (the latter 2 do entirely graphite basses). If these are avenues you've already gone down, sorry I couldn't help. Good luck :bassist:

    Headless is an option on all the Moses necks - so if there's one with the spacing and heel dimensions you need then you can get it made headless. Email Moses and they'll help get you set up with what you want.
