    Do the blond Tursers have maple fretboards? I didn't know that...neat.

    My Eastwood has a thin neck, sorta. It's about jazz width at the nut, but it barely widens at all as you move toward the heel, which I like. It's slightly chunky front-to-back, though.

    Thinnest neck I've ever seen front to back is on Ambush basses by Scott Ambush. Here's how thin they are: If you lay the bass face down on the floor, the side dot markers are fully visible.
    :D

    Thinnest neck I've played on was a Pedulla Pentabuzz. :eek:

    It felt great, even though I have big hands, I still prefer a smaller neck for a faster feel and greater playability.
