What bass has the lowest action and/or thinnest neck?
Well action can be adjusted, so any bass...
but thinnest neck, the Geddy
Hands down, amazing bass
I had a Vox Phantom IV that had a ridiculously skinny neck. It was my second bass, and after I moved to a Rick 4001, I could never play it again. My Ibanez SR 800 has a very slim neck as well.
You mean thin and not narrow, right??
Pedulla and Lakland.
The Geddy Lee Jazz neck is not nearly as thin as a lot of other basses. Some Ibanez' are paper thin, I've played some Yamahas that were very thin, although they were pretty wide. The Conklin GT-BD7 has an incredibly thin neck. Mike Adler has made some with super-thin necks.
If you mean front to back thin, then it has to be Benavente.
The Lakland necks are super thin and melts in your hand.
Soundgear necks are about the narrowest, AND thinnest. The Geddy is the thinnest, narrowest Fender neck. Starfire necks are silly narrow all the way up the board.
Most peavey's have very skinny necks. Thinner than the geddy, at least the ones I have played
I've got a Series 1, that that's ridiculous even by my standards.
If set up right, most Ibanez basses.
My warwick has the lowest action of any bass I've ever owned, without a single buzz. It's the most narrow neck I've ever played also. 97 corvette - wenge neck.
Mosrites have very thin necks (and very flat, nearly non-existant frets).
The Peavey Foundation ("the poor man's Jazz Bass") is 1.489" at the nut -- just a little narrower than a regular Jazz.
The consistently lowest action I've ever seen was on Status graphite basses. However, after Lakland performed their magic on my Spector, it gets amazingly low!
There is this one alembic, I can't recall what model, at a local store that I picked up and had to put it right back because the neck was sooo thin. Geddy lee's are also pretty thin
Aren't Zon necks really thin?
For me, my TBC 4banger has the best feeling neck in the world.
