    Hey, looking at Warmoth basses on the net (dream custom bass...drool) And I was wondering, what are their necks akin to? Fender P? J? Ibanez? What would you compare their necks to, feel wise? The 13 angled Warmoth house 5 string neck in particutlar. Thanks

    The only Warmoth (neck and body) that I've played was a 5 stringer and it reminded me of my Roscoe Beck 5. It's kinda like a P bass neck but wider. Of course this was a Fender-type knock-off Warmoth.

    Brendan, I'm pretty sure that when you order a Warmoth neck, you have to specify neck shape and such. In fact, although Warmoth uses a "standard" radius, you can order a custom radius if you'd like;)

    I know...but radius confuses me profusely, and the neck shape is either even, or tapered are the only choices (I'm pretty sure)...could you enlighten me on the whole radius situation?
