  5. The neck on my ibanez SR905 is the closest to perfect that I've found for me.

    lakland and MTD USA basses play better than anything else ive touched.
     
  9. Rick 4001/4003 (the way the make them now, not the thicker ones from a few years ago) for most playing and Fender Jazz for slapping around.
     
  10. Unfinished D - shape necks (wick style) also the "Modern C" what my curbow has is nice and fast
     
  11. i like jazz bass necks.
    nice and thin and easy to play.

    as far as finishes go, i prefer a thick glossy neck.

    i had warmoth make my jazz bass neck with VT gloss polyurethane.
     
  12. MIA fender Jazz Basses, without a doubt, my fav neck
     
  13. MTD and Lakland in that order.
