Just curious to see how it falls out.
I'm not quite sure I could even play a 1.75, do any basses really have this as an option or even the standard radius?
Just out of curiosity, do you think more people have less-than-standard neck spacing as in a Schecter or an Ibanez rather than a plus-size like a Stingray or a P?
P.S. I voted for 1.5
It's all about the Jazz nut width.
Love my sterling neck. Its perfect. same width as jazz but different profile.
Definately 1.625. I would actually like the neck on my P-Bass to be a little bigger, not just in width, but in depth too. Me likes the big necks.
The Alembic Signature and Series model basses have a 1.75" nut as standard with a relatively straight run of strings up the fretboard. Most of their other models are 1.625" at the nut and spread out wider as they approach the bridge. Of course, they will custom order just about any practical size.
I have played one of their basses recently that was 1.4" at the nut, and it was blazing fast if your fingers fit. Mine did.
I thought there were some Fender/MM models that were 1.75" at the nut, but maybe I was mistaken.
