Yeah, I found the neck to be really weird and I don't have a problem with large necks. Overall I just didn't like the feel of the bass. I played another one recently and it was the same thing. Kind of a bummer because they look cool and sell pretty cheap.
Weird timing - I was just getting my bass out and thought I'd give the T-40 another shot and felt exactly how Elisha stated. Something on that just wasn't feeling right and I noticed it even after having not played for months. Went back to the Magnum and it was instantly better.
The magnum is a bit less wide at the nut, but thicker all the way down the neck. I'm sure I could get used to the T-40, but whatever.
