    It's German semolina pudding, a guilty pleasure (one of many)

    Not yet alas, last couple of years I sold my basses (Squier deluxe V, Squier P/J 5-string and an Olympic white J, fiver also. Four years I didn't touch a fretboard until I couldn't resist the urge any longer and laid my hands on a Tele Custom guitar with P90's and soon after that a red MIK Squier strat, an S9 (89 I found out here). That tele I could handle up to half an hour, than my fingers acted up again, but, the neck on that red strat was really gentle to my dear fingers. Could practice for hours on that guitar. So hope showed up again. That Custom I swapped for another mik squier, an S1, had the same sweet neck but turned out to be a bummer because the body was not original, still ply but def not squier. ( I missed the non-offset backplate holes) Also someone had shimmed the neck totally wrong. Corrected that so the neck is sitting level again in the body but probably gonna replace that body as soon as bump into a nice one.
    So pictures are coming but not yet ;-)

    Thanks! That ship has sailed, alas. Tried that, owned a nice Burns bass for a couple of months but same problem showed up. In my case it's the string gauge that causes problems I think. I even tried a baritone to no avail. ;-)
