    Available to P bass lovers who are selective about the quality of the neck on your bass. Wilkins P bass neck, made in about 2013 to specs of Fender 1965 "C" neck (1.75 inch at nut), but made with top notch materials. Quartersawn 100 year old maple and a beautiful old slab of Brazilian rosewood with lovely chocolate brown hues. Complete with bone nut, Hipshot ultralight tuners. Vintage style frets, impeccable fretwork. Truss operates perfectly, adjustable with Allen (hex) wrench. Excellent and solid, 4 bolt pattern. The rosewood alone is probably worth more than my asking price of $400. Free shipping to continental USA if you pay my asking price.

    Nobody should hesitate to snatch this up. Pat does amazing work and only uses the best stuff. Rosewood boards like this are very hard to come by. GLWTS!

    Is this the typical Wilkins 10" fingerboard radius?
    Neck profile a little flatter or more of a hefty round/baseball bat feel?

    I think a 9.5 radius, but could be 10. Has a more chunky neck feel. Probably comfy for bigger hands.
