    I see that most people prefer Pbass neck over jazz, but isnt the slimmer neck supposed to feel better? But the wierd thing is many people prefer ibanez necks which is the slimmest...

    Ive not played before a jazz bass, but I prefer an ibanez neck over my pbass neck....so yeah

    I like a jazz as my top. But, my P is also super comfy. And so is my spector. They are all different. But my jazz is the top.

    I like every neck except Warwicks and those pencil-thin Danelectros. Also, there was this one yamaha 5-string in which the neck was almost FLAT, it was so horrible.

    I voted P since I like em large.
     
  4. Warmoth Showcase always has more Jazz necks than Precision..

    I like the Stingray neck!
    But the easiest to play on are the Laklands.

    I really dont like Warwick-necks either ...


    And for the poll , i voted J-neck .. The neck is probably the reason for i always end up with a J-bass ...

    Jazz.....geddy lee necks = :hyper:
     
  8. I prefer the older P-Bass necks that are 1.75" wide at the nut but I have both P-Basses and J-Basses and I'm comfortable on both necks.

    I started off on a p-copy, so it feels more natural to me. I don't like super skinny necks. I'm not a huge chunky Warwick style man, but I'd rather play a Warwick than
    an Ibanez.
     
  13. Different techniques from everyone will mean different comfort levels of playing on neck profiles.

    Technically a thicker neck at the nut and thinner at the bridge is the most ergo friendly, but there's so many techniques in how people place their thumb and such there is only a best for you and not slimmer = better.

    I have a MIA deluxe jazz and a humble ibanez gsr200...the neck of the ibanez is sooo comfy that the scale feels smaller.

    For fours? Modern P-bass, MM Stingray (similar to modern P-bass), and vintage P-bass. J-bass necks are too slim for my comfort.

    I voted other...the Bongo 4 neck is my sweetspot.
     
  17. Hard to say. For me, the finish on the neck is probably more important. I like a good J-neck, but I also like the more P-like neck on my Model T. I guess it all just depends on the bass...

    Statistically speaking, in accordance with the poll here in your thread, the evidence would tend to indicate that...

    YOU'RE WRONG!!!:p

    BTW - I voted Jazz too, but I like the "Modern C Shape" better than the super skinny Geddy shape!

    I can't believe how comfortable the Sterling's neck is, so I vote that. It's the perfect shape for my hand.
