Hi! I am playing bass for about 2 years. I only play with acoustic for that periods. I want to buy an electric bass to improve my playing style. I asked my friend, he was playing bass for years, and he told me, "I suggest you to buy ibanez or other bass. Fender's fretboard size is wider and would be hidious for short fingers like yours" So I check the internet and found that fender generally uses 20 frets and other bass, like my cort acoustic bass use 23 frets. Is it right that the fretboard of fender/squier is wider and longer? Or my friend just felt wider because fender uses "c" neck. Currently I haven't check to the local music store. So please help me as you can.
