    I am thinking about building a new warmoth bass.
    I already built one, but their jazz bass neck is a little thin for me.
    Is there anyway to order a jazz neck (1"1/2) but with a biger neck?

    That's weird. The Waroth Jazz basses that I have built have had necks that I wouldn't catigorize as thin.

    The necks remind me of a '72 jazz I owned a few years ago. Kinda chunky. But then again, I LOVE the super slim Geddy neck. Anything is chunky compared to that thing!!!!!

    Unfortunately, Warmoth dosen't offer different necks shapes.

    I agree with Nino. My fretless Warmoth Jazz neck feels like the big end of a baseball bat compared to my G&L. My thought is to try a Fender replacement (62 Jazz).

    IT's true that the neck might not be considered thin, but I'm have very big hands and I guess "I" would like a little more meat on the neck :)

    I might just buy that one

    Sadowsky metro...
    I used to own a 4 string NYC Sadowsky and if the neck is the same as the NYC it would be on the thin side again (for me).

    I might just ask a local luthier to build me a jazz bass...

    Way too many choice!!

    Have you considered building a bass with a Warmoth P neck?
    The neck on the T-Blue P that I have, seems like it'll have the neck profile you're looking for.
     
  6. The Geddy neck is one of the thinest I've ever played.

    I also liked the neck on the Miller sig, it was a lot chunkier, but not too big. We talking in that chunky area, or even chunkier?
