Warmoth's finish options
Warmoth's Gecko line is designed for bassists who prefer modern aesthetics and playability. There are four bodies in the line, each with a corresponding neck. The bodies sport an array of boutique features, including an extended upper horn for perfect balance, a heel-less neck joint, a perfectly designed control cavity, and a huge range of exotic wood options.
Narrow Width 5-String Neck Pocket
The Gecko 5 Small Body fits the Gecko 5 Small Neck. The width of the playing surface at the 22nd fret is 2-7/8" (73mm). Choose this body if you prefer a narrow 5-string playing feel.
Comfortable Neck Joint
The heel-less neck joint allows easy access to all 24 frets. The neck bolts are laid out in an asymmetric pattern for superior stability, and secured with custom recessed washers for maximum comfort.
Large Control Cavity
The rear-routed control cavity is thoughtfully designed in every detail. It features a built-in compartment for up to two batteries, a recessed area for neat installation of an active preamp, and plenty of room for the remaining controls. The cavity cover attaches with machine screws and threaded brass inserts that won’t strip out.
When ordering, you can specify either three or four holes for controls. The three-control pattern is laid out in an arc along the side of the body, along with a slot for a blade switch. The four-control pattern is an LP-style diamond.
