: I've not been able to view many Basses in showrooms or stores, however

: one store did have a Cermona bass, and upon close viewing I found that the neck

: looked as round as the striking end of a Louisville slugger baseball bat.

: The neck on my old Kay is oval shaped and very comfortable.

: My question is: Are most necks on various basses round or oval?

: I would appreciate an answer from Bassists who have seen a lot of Basses.

: Thank You.

To answer your question: "Are most necks on various basses round or oval?" ...the answer is all of the above and everything else!

It's just one of the many things that varies a lot from instrument to instrument. The key is to try different instruments and see what you like and what works for you.

Maybe it's cause I have a fairly large hand, but adjusting to different shaped necks has never been a problem for me. And God knows I've had plenty of problems adjusting to all kinds of other things! So, if I were shopping for a bass, that's one thing I would not be especially focused on.

Maybe other people have another opinion?
