    I bought this neck from another TB’er about 1.5 years ago. I’ve had it on one of my main players for a little over a year. It’s a really nice neck, the profile has a pre-CBS feel to it, barely 1.5", thin and narrow, but it’s just a little too narrow for my liking. The previous owner compared it to the Geddy Lee profile and I’d agree with that. Specs as follows:
    -Maple/Rosewood-the RW has a very nice, even color.
    -1.5 nut w Tusq nut
    -11/16" tuner holes
    -Looks to be finished in a nitro with a vintage tint
    -Headstock nitro is checking. There’s also a very faint outline from the “Atkinson” logo. You can’t really see it straight on but it’s noticeable it you tilt it.
    -Back of the neck is great, looks to have been worn in more than the rest, you can subtly tell from the color of the finish on the back.
    -Has the truss rod adjusting wheel at the heel but I believe that could be replaced with a standard nut if your bass isn’t routed for a wheel.
    Previous sale is here with more info and pics: SOLD - Dan Atkinson Jazz Bass Neck - Maple/Rosewood
    It’s in identical shape as when I got it with the exception of the Tusq nut I installed after I got it.
    I’m asking $210 shipped to the lower 48. PayPal is preferred. No trades and no international shipping, thanks.

    Looks like it wore some ultralites. Do you know the tuner hole diameter?

    Any idea what kind of body modification would need to be done to fit the wheel?

    Yes, it did, I had HB6C-1/2's on it. The tuner holes are 11/16", I'll add that to the OP as well.

    My luthier just used a Forstner bit to cut a half circle notch in the body to fit the wheel. I had it on a "beater" body so I wasn't concerned about not being a rectangular cutout, like a EBMM. Either way, it should be a pretty simple job for any qualified tech. It's also very possible that you could swap the wheel with vintage Fender style truss rod nut too. I have one here from another neck and it fits, I just didn't try adjusting it. If anyone knows anything more about that, please let me know.
