    question in title.

    ive never played a fender P before, i played a squire one at school and the headstock seemed shorter than my Jazz. But that might be the strap length differance.

    also i didnt really notice that the neck was thinner, but once again i cant really judge since its a squire,

    Hey Donut Man,
    Fender necks are interchangable. The pocket route will accept jazz bass or p bass necks. The shape the head stock has varied slightly over time but pretty much the same. The main difference is the thichness and shape of p vs Jazz. Jazz is very narrow at the nut and the neck is thinner. P's are chuncky. Personally, I don't care for P bass necks but that is only an opinion. I don't know too much about squires but I image they stay pretty true to the design of the bigger brothers.

    Yes. Same headstock. The only difference in the necks is that the Jazz bass narrows more towards the nut. Same neck pocket, same headstock.
