Standard Features on Gecko Necks

  • 35" scale
  • Nut width: 1-7/8" (48mm)
  • Width at 24th fret: 3" (76mm)
  • String pitch at the bridge: 3/4" (19mm)
  • Straight 14" (356mm) fingerboard radius
  • Predrilled Neck Mounting Holes

This neck features generous right hand spacing and a fairly narrow nut for fingerstyle players wanting the versatility of a low B without a huge neck. Fretted notes are easily within reach of the left hand, but there’s still room for traditional fingerstyle technique. The best of both worlds in a comfortable package.

Gecko Features

The Gecko bass series is specifically designed to bring professional bassists their most desired features and functions in any degree of assembly that suits their finances or abilities. These premium quality pieces (and they truly are premium) incorporate woods, construction, and design elements found only on top of the line instruments retailing for $2500 and more.

Depending upon what features you choose, a Gecko may be assembled for less than half this price. Gecko components have been designed and manufactured with ease of assembly in mind. You can do this! Be assured, you won’t find a more exceptional bass for your hard-earned money, anywhere.

All standard Gecko bass necks feature 5-piece laminated construction (using bubinga or purpleheart for the lam depending on availability), 35" scale and 24 fret fingerboards. Each neck has been fine sanded, and dipped in a penetrating sealer, ready for final spray finishing. Through holes are drilled .551" (14mm) for Gotoh tuning machines. Neck mounting holes are also predrilled. Choose from our list of fretwire types to install. A black truss rod cover and screws are provided. Please see the paint & finish section for finishing options. If you prefer a blank fingerboard, we can omit the Gecko inlay for an additional $35.

Example of a Wenge Laminate Neck

The Gecko series bass necks feature an asymmetric back shape for a more comfortable, fast feeling. These necks "feel" thin, but retain sufficient bulk for strength and tone. The asymmetric back shape keeps perceived neck bulk down for maximum hand comfort and to create a thinner, fast feeling neck. The bass side of the neck is thicker, with the treble side being thinner. Your thumb will find easy reference as your hand glides up and down the neck. This is a very comfortable neck to play.

Fretless Line Option

NOTE: All Gecko necks are available fretted or fretless at the same price.Unlined fretless necks have the side position markers moved to the exact fret positions, rather than between them.

Contrasting strips of wood inlaid into the fretless fingerboard at the usual fret positions. Maple lines are used in dark fingerboard woods, black lines are used on maple. Additional $105
