    I was wondering if anyone has the numbers, or has a caliper to measure, the profile on a Fender '62 Reissue Jazz Bass neck? I'm interested in the thickness of the neck at the 1st, 5th, 7th, and 12th frets...or what ever numbers are available.

    I don't have calipers but I carefully eyeball'd mine and I get:

    1st - 3/4"
    5th - 13/16"
    7th - 13/16"
    9th - almost 7/8"
    12th - almost 7/8"

    Mine's a 1989 MIA '62 RI Jazz (ex 'Mary Kay').
