    Hi Samit,

    I'm not sure what you mean by a 'speed neck', mainly because different players tend to favour different characteristics to help them get around the neck quickly - I love the necks on my Modulus basses which are quite wide but shallow - easy spacing to get your fingers between, but not to chunky. Other people find a P-bass profile easier to handle...

    if you elaborate on what you're looking for, then I'll see what I can do...
