    So, after about a year of saving, I have decided it is time to get a American Fender Jazz. Here is my question:

    I have only played my 2 basses, a 1987 Peavey Fury and a 1992 Foundation.

    Which Jazz neck (Standard vs Special) would be closest to what I am used to.

    I have heard in reviews that the neck on the American Special Jazz is thinner and easier to play than the American Standard Jazz. Is this a very noticeable difference.

    Thanks

    The closest Jazz neck would be the Geddy Lee Sig.

    The Special neck will be closer(size-wise) to those Peaveys than the Standard... IMO, the differences are somewhat subtle, but are definitely there... My MIA Fury had a tiny neck - on par with my SUB Sterling or Gibson T-bird, and definitely smaller/thinner than my MIA Fender Jazz necks... The tiny neck was one of the reasons why I flipped my Fury - I wanted a more substantial neck in a P Bass copy... The Foundation 5 I bought afterwards has a very nice neck - it's very close(size-wise) to my Sterling 5 HS... I haven't had the chance to play a 4 string Foundation, but I can imagine that they have very good fretwork, and sound great...

    Agreed - IMO, the Squier VMJ necks are fairly small, too...
