    Is there a pictorial listing/naming all the parts of a bass? For instance, and as bad as it sounds :p , I have no idea what the nut is. :bag:

    It's not stupid either, we all had to learn some how!

    This is a nut and where it's located on an instrument!

    I have attached a diagram that shows bass parts, hope this helps!

    Glad to help out. I think I've named most all of the major parts. Between what Treena posted and what I have you've pretty much got it covered.

    !!Knowledge is power!!


    P.S. the fretboard is on top of the neck.

    Yeah..I'm familiar with the rest of the bass....(thanks for telling me about the fretboard! ;) ) I just wasn't sure about the nut.

    Thanks all!

    The nut, that's usually the person playing it, right? :)
