    Hey folks,
    I have a Warmoth Deluxe 5 bass (G5 shape). I love it, nice and light,great balance,an almost 70's J bass tone,but...the neck profile is similar to a Louisville Slugger! My preference is more along the lines of the Fender Jazz 5 profile:a little bit of "heft",but still comfortable enough for fleet fingered exursions.
    Have any of you had a Warmoth DN5 neck slimmed to a more manegable profile,and,if so,what was the outcome:any negative change in tone/stability? Thanks.
     
  2. I believe the Warmoth necks are thick as hell to fit the massive truss-rod system they shove in their necks.

    And I doubt a thinner neck will affect tone. A smaller neck heel might, but we aren't talking about that.
