Neck Builder

  • Width at 24th fret: 3.3" (83.8mm)
  • String pitch at the bridge: 21/32" (16.5mm)

The asymmetrical contour of this wide neck makes playing more comfortable and allows full access to the two octave fingerboard. This neck features two truss rods to enable relief to be set independently on the bass and treble sides of the neck for optimum action and playability. The wide heel is attached with 6 bolts for superior stability and sonic coupling.

Neck Details
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 Maple Laminate Neck

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.
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.

Fretless Line Option


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