    OK........I just picked up an unrouted Warmoth Gecko body. I want this bass to be a 4 string, however, as most of you know, the Geckos are only 5 string and Warmoth won't make me a 4 string neck to fit the body (the necks have a tongue extension due to the angle of where the body meets the neck. Henceforth, I can't just pop a neck in).
    Does any body know anyone who will make me this special neck? or does anyone know of a neck like a Brubaker that I can purchase somewhere?
    Thanks for the help.

    If it's unrouted, does that mean that it doesn't have a neck pocket cut out yet or what?

    Here's what you do... have them build you a narrow slim profile 5 neck, but just order a paddle head... so you can design your own tuner configuration...

    I thought the same thing, just without pegholes drilled. Thats a little wide though no? Its still gonna be 2 7/8 at the 24th fret.
