    Hi, does anyone knows who makes thin necks? Ive got a fender jazz mex standard , and ive tried out the Stu Hamm signature and i love the thin neck (i think its called oval?), so does anyone know a company who make these thin necks that will more importantly fit a j bass?

    thank you for your help!

    IMO Lakland and Dingwall basses have thin necks.

    Can anyone give me any names of people who could either make, or sell replacement necks that are thinner than ur adverage j-bass neck, but will fit 'em still?

    Thanks :)

    Sorry, should have known what you were heading at. So, to make it up:

    Vox Humana Guitars in the Netherlands. They make personal neck-replacements, i thought. Check their site... http://www.voxhumana.nl/

    Btw. Hey! That's a very nice copy of the Charlie Hunter Guitar. Shame it's a copy. But hey, they make copies... I say email them!

    If that doesn't pan out, USA Custom Guitars says that they'll make custom thickness necks.
