    How much heavier are they than an ordinary Fender neck?
    Can a set of Hipshot ultralight tuners neutralize the difference so there is no more neckdive than usual.

    I've never had any neckdive issues with the Warmoth basses I've built. I've Used Schaller BML's on the 4's & Gotoh mini tuners on the 5's.

    Warmoth has a new body that has honey comb cutouts & I would assume the very light bodies might have some neckdive going on but I can;t be sure cause all my Warmoths were 10lbs+.

    ...and the sound.
    How do they sound compared to grafite reinforced necks or vintafe Fender necks? Can you hear the difference?
