    Hi, I have heard a lot of people say the Geddy Lee Fender Jazz bass neck is way to thin, how thin is it?
    Is it like a Soundgear? I really don't like neck's that are too thin. I will have to buy this bass online (U.K.) so i won't have the chance of playing it, so some feedback would be good. Is there a huge defference between a standard Jazz neck and the Geddy?

    At the nut, it is narrower and thinner than a Soundgear. It has a slightly more radical taper than a regular Jazz neck. By the 5th fret, it is beefier than a Soundgear.
