  1. how do i tell what kind of neck i have i cant work it out hehe.

  2. look at the back of your bass.. see some screws ?

    if yes - you got a bolt-on
    if no - you got a neck-thru

    simple, eh ? :)

    Hi Steve,

    First thing you need to do is get a mirror. Then look into it. Now, look at your face, then slowly move downwards but not too much. The part that joins your head to your body is known as the "neck".

    There are many types of necks - thick necks, thin necks, hairy necks, hairless necks, no necks, long necks, fat necks, lumpy necks... if you can feel an adam's apple on the front of the neck, you have a guy neck. If not, you have a girl neck.

    :) Sorry I couldn't help myself! :p

    Seriously, J necks are thinner, narrower, and "faster" to play. I can't remember the exact specs though...
