    Is the Fury neck similar to a Jazz bass neck in any way? And does it have a neck dive issue where the headstock is too heavy and makes the neck swing down because of weight? I don't want to deal with a heavy neck dive.

    There are early fury necks (on the ones with the slanted super ferrite pup, a la t20), which are pretty wide, 1 11/16 to 1 3/4. These are not jazz necks at all. However, later furys, the ones that are basically p copies, have a 1.5" nut width like a jazz, but the ones I've played feel slightly deeper (not much deeper) than a jazz. Both of my peaveys (Early fury with super ferrite and later model foundation) both have some neck dive, but it is not unbearable.

    My Fury has minor neck dive but with a good wide leather padded strap it is is not an issue.
