    Thinking about building my own 8-string octave bass. Warmoth offers a neck, but it looks pretty big & heavy. Have any of you tried one?
    Thanks! :bassist:

    I used to know a guy who had one. It was indeed big and heavy. He liked it.

    It made the bass spectacularly neck heavy. He ended up making his own 8 string with a Carvin 5 string neck-through neck and pieces of the bass in question. He thought so much of the Warmoth neck that he sawed the headstock off to store his extra tuners on. The rest of it burned nicely though.

    YMMV

    Thank you! I think I will find the right bass to remodel.
