Jazz Basses with P necks?
Just wondering how many people buck the trend, and put P-bass necks on their Jazz bodies...
I just scored a fretted Precision neck, in trade for the fretless neck off my Jazz. I'm really loving the beefy feel in my hand, and the extra room to maneuver. I can get a more expressive vibrato than I could with the old pencil neck...
That's definitely bucking the trend. Most do the opposite. :)
True, but it seems really logical to me.
One size does not fit all. At 6' 2", 230lb and size 13 shoes, it's not like I need skinny necks on my basses to solve a reach problem.
Maybe it's just my big meat hooks, but I hate pencil necks.
I don't know if it's the extra lumber in the neck, or simply that my big fingers have more room for vibrato, shakes and bends, etc. Whatever it is, I find that I get a bigger, more expressive tone when I play basses with wider spacing at the nut.
My favourite P-bass was an early 2000's AVRI '62. 1.75" at the nut for only 4 strings. It felt like slipping on a favourite pair of carpet slippers!
And it's not like the Squire CV Precision is a baseball bat. It's only a fraction wider and deeper than the VM Jazz neck...
Yea, gotta love the beefy feel. I put a p neck on my jazz and I don't regret it
