After playing my bass for two years, I am getting better at understanding what I want in a bass. I have had the opportunity to play other basses and like the feel of the neck much better on other basses. I like the bass I have, but do not like the neck because it is too thick. The bass has a maple neck. Has anyone had the neck of their bass reshaped or did the job themselves? Should it be an expensive job? Is there anything I need to be pre-warned about? Can this compromise the bass? Planning to take it to a luthier where there are many basses around so I can give him feedback on exactly what I want. Thanks for any info on this.
