Bass Necks Nut Widths

Nut Width is definitely a significant factor in determining how your neck will feel. Large hands love a wider nut width as it feels more comfortable. Some intricate playing styles such as "slap-bass" are best served on a wider nut width for room to groove! Lightening fast fret-hand playing will enjoy a smaller nut width. Pick the size that suits your hands and playing style!
