    I'm looking for feedback from anybody that owns one of the basses. I'm seriously considering one that I just found,in new condition. My main concern is the neck. I have smallish hands,and from past experence from owning a Jazz 5 string,I remember it wasn't a very comfortable neck. I heard that the RB V has a different shape neck that might do the trick. Any input will be very greatfully appreciated.

    I don't have any input of my own, aside from that I've tried one in a store and it seemed like a great bass.

    Here's the results of a search, however, with the word "beck" in a titles only search of the basses forum. Probably more reading material than you wanted! ;)

    The RB5 has an asymmetrical neck profile that I find extremely comfortable despite having average sized hands at best. I own two RB5's, so that should tell you what I think of 'em. :)
