    I love the tone of my P bass, but don't like P necks. I want to get a Big Block maple neck like a Geddy to put on my MIM P bass, which is black and white.

    Now there is a new VM Squier Jazz at my local shop I thought about buying for the neck. Would you do it?

    I also thought about the idea of getting another Geddy for the neck. This is what I would prefer to do, but cost is the limiting factor! Any other ideas besides Allparts or Warmouth because I can't afford to shell out $400 or more for a neck.

    If you find a neck you like better,go for it..it's your bass. I have an '84 Squier Jazz neck on my MIA Fen Jazz because I preferred the rosewood over the maple board that it came with. And it's simply a better neck IMO..

    a VM squire neck has a wider heal than a MIM P bass body will except without mdification .... if I'm not mistaken.

    Actually, it will fit without a problem - I've done it more than few times.

    OP, if you like the neck, do it.
