    I have a question about my 79 Fender P Bass. It has a Maple board with a skunk stripe. I've read some posts that talk about different Fender neck profiles like A, B, C, along with some measurements like 1 5/8" etc.

    I'd like to find out which neck I have. My question is where is this measured and what measurements go with which neck profiles (A, B, etc.)? :confused:

    Thanks,
    Randy
     
  2. measure the width of the neck at the nut, the three different necks measure A - 1 3/4", B - 1 5/8", and C - 1 1/2".

    Thanks!

    By those measurements, I have a B profile neck at 1 5/8". :)
