Warmoth Custom Guitar Parts - Bass Neck Profile

Bass Neck Profiles

The Neck Profile is the contour or grip shape of the neck, and is an important consideration for optimum playability and hand comfort. For reference, compare the dimensions below (measured from the face of the fretboard to the back of the neck) to those of your favorite neck.

4-String Neck Profile

Standard Profile

  • Similar to: Modern Fender® JBass® or PBass®
  • Thickness at 1st Fret: .872" (22mm)
  • Thickness at 12th Fret: .975" (25mm)

The Standard Profile is our most popular profile, with a medium thickness most players enjoy. It is built with our Super Bass Construction for strength and stability.

Slim Taper Profile

  • Similar to: Early JBass® necks
  • Thickness at 1st Fret: .790" (20mm)
  • Thickness at 12th Fret: .920" (23mm)
  • $35 extra

Slimmer than our Standard Profile, and built with the same Super Bass Construction for strength and stability. Available with 1-1/2" or 1-11/16" nut widths only.

5-String Neck Profiles

Deluxe 5 Profile

  • Thickness at 1st Fret: .865" (22mm)
  • Thickness at 12th Fret: .975" (25mm)

Our Deluxe 5 necks feature an asymmetric profile that is thicker on the bass side and thinner on the treble side, making them fast and easy to play. Like our 4-string necks they feature Super Bass Construction for strength and stability.

Standard MIM 5-String Profile

  • Similar to: Fender® MIM Standard 5 necks
  • Thickness at 1st Fret: .860" (22mm)

  • Thickness at 12th Fret: .960" (24mm)

Our 30" and 32" bass necks feature a neck profile in between our Standard Profile and Slim Taper Profile. They are built with our double expanding truss rod, and do not require stiffening rods due to their reduced length.

Gecko Neck Profile

Gecko Profile

  • Thickness at 1st Fret: .875" (22mm)
  • Thickness at 12th Fret: .975" (25mm)

The Gecko series bass necks feature an asymmetric neck profile that is thicker on the bass side and thinner on the treble, making them easy and quick to play.
