Over the years I’ve seen people saying a particular bass has neckdive and then others will say that it doesn’t. Saw that recently with respect to the Caprice but then I also noticed that he said that it had neckdive while trying it at Guitar Center. Straps are rarely used at a music store and that’s when the light bulb clicked on. To me, neckdive is when it’s on a strap in normal standing, playing position. Essentially, if you hold the bass up with it resting its strap points on your index fingers and the center of mass is somewhere in the body, the bass isn’t going to neckdive on a strap. However, when I put the Caprice on my right knee, it will neckdive. I usually don’t notice neckdive while seated because my right arm almost always pushes down on the back of the bass at the forearm contour. If I were to play the bass primarily seated, it could be an issue. I propose that when we talk about bass X having neckdive, we specify if it is when seated or on a strap.
