    Did MightyMite make changed to there necks in the last few years.

    I have a new Jazz neck that I picked up in Dec. (just getting around to using it).

    The neck is just over 1/32 narrower at the 20th fret than my older MightyMite neck (about 4 years old)

    Also the headstock is a bit different.
  2. Maybe they changed manufacturers?

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
    They make a jazz neck and a p-bass neck.

    Also each neck comes in 2 profiles. A shallow D profile and a fatter C profile.

    I have not seen a change in any headstocks.

    They are jazz necks.

    The new one has the heart logo on it. (top)
    The older one has the round logo. (attached to body)

    Besides the angel notice the placement of the nut.

    Photo with tuner holes lined up. don't have a photo before I reshaped the headstock.

    The OP stated in his second past that he reshaped the headstock.

    I used a MM P neck for a '78 P bass I built 5-6 years ago. Just bought a MM Jazz bass neck, about a year ago which is now on my main player. The only thing I noticed is that the tuner ferrules were a bit harder to push in on the Jazz neck.
