I have a 2016 Fender American Standard P bass and, while I generally like the bass, the Fender modified C neck profile just doesn't work for me. I thought that I could get used to it but the modified C shape is just too round and chunky for my playing comfort. I prefer a thin and flatter profile like my original '65 P, my USA Lakland Scheff 5, Ibanez SR and BTB 5 strings. I've been curious about roasted maple and it's attributes so I took the leap and ordered one from Warmoth. It's a Maple/Maple P - 10" radius, Slim Taper w/ steel rods, tusq nut and 6105 frets. I just can't believe the excellent quality of this neck. The feel is perfect, the slim taper is thinner than their standard but is still substantial and exactly what I was looking for. It requires no finish and the construction and fret work are impeccable. I installed the tuners and mounted it myself, the neck pocket is a perfect fit. I took it to my bass tech to lower the slots in the factory installed nut and to generally look it over. He put a straight edge to the frets and they required no leveling and the edges are perfectly cut and beveled. The frets are a tall vintage type and the bass has zero dead spots, lots of sustain and no neck dive. I used it last night on a rehearsal of the musical Newsies and it feels effortless to play. It's the fastest neck that I've ever owned and makes the bass sound generally more even. Warmoth necks are worth it, great products and excellent customer service. Their prices are premium but in the case of the roasted, since they require no finish, they are an excellent value. I'll probably be selling the original neck.
