    Hi,
    Which of Fender Precision basses has the smallest width at the nut. I know that the Jazz is 1.5. Is there a fender pbass that has a nut width that is close to that measurement?

  4. The Nate Mendel and Duff models are slightly smaller than 1.75. I think 1.625. The P bass specials were 1.5 I think.

    Mike Dirnts, too, are more narrow than the general modern P.

    Through Fender's new American Design Experience, you can build P bass with a Jazz neck. Or you could buy a Lakland.
