What’s up with this? 4003 basses are not like this, their necks are inline, but every C64 bass or C64S the necks lean forward making it really hard to to get low action as the bridges need to be slammed.

For example... if you put a C64 body flat on a table, you will notice the neck doesn’t run parallel to the table it’s like a slope going up towards the headstock, even with a dead straight neck. It’s clearly visible to the eye. And everyone I’ve seen is like it, Unlike 4003 basses.

Seems so strange and make strong height an issue. Almost pointless having an adjustable bridge because they all have to be slammed and saddles filed.
