I'm sure this has been discussed before but for those who haven't seen it --> A friend casually sent me a link to an Ibanez SR4000E and I noticed the most wonderful thing: http://www.ibanez.com/BassGuitars/model-SR4000E Take a look at those measurements on their website! I have never seen anyone else do that. Awesome! If other builders did that we could all spend less time asking each other about necks for one thing. That gives you a general idea of what you are in for at both the nut and 12th fret. This should be like the Nutrition Facts label on food - required! Nice bass too!
