 Bay neck
Author: STuart

OK, first of all may I say that San Francisco can kiss misintonation - I just can't win here. I live with a guitarist who won't tune to me - only to a tuner at 440.
I recently wrote about being flat on my Bb, that magicaly went away for the most part but an old problem still lives with me: my Bass Clarinet is at least 5 hertz sharp all the time. I had the bass of the neck extended but it didn't help enough. I think I should get a Bay neck and pull way out, becasue I don't have a prayer right now, its embaressing. I look at a picture of Dolphy all day here, and he has an adjustable neck so I'm reminded. SO:

-has anybody played em? what's the scoop?

-where can I get one cheap? Bay is famous for being too expensive for Stuart, is there a cheaper imitation?

-is there any others alternative to my sharpness cutting away freinds and audiences alike?
