Confession:

A week ago, I offed a Spector ReBop 5 for a Warwick FNA JazzMan 5.

Ouch city. The huge neck feels great, for about 30 min at a time. I play some bigger necks than that, but they are 4bangers with tight radius and huge string spacing, meant to be played at or near vertical. The Warwick has 16mm spacing and a much flatter radius and is stricklee a horizontal animal.

Salvation is that I still have another Spector 5-string in house.

Do you find that you play a Warwick 5-string differently than less hefty necks ?

I'm finding that I don't hold the Warwick neck between my thumb and fingers like other necks. I leave my thumb hanging uselessly [and somewhat in the way] and I brace the body with my right arm and elbow so that I can haul back on the strings using my whole left arm instead of just my left hand. Thaz URB/EUB mode, and I don't find a bass guitar to be a convenience if it hasta be played that way [except of course when toting it to and from the gig].

New basses are red. Used basses are black.

Only one in the house. A custom G&L 2500, cherryburst, matching headstock, body binding, ebony board (no markers) GOT neck and figured maple top. Not bad at all.
