    I have a question, and Google is not my friend. I am contemplating getting the new Squier CV Jaguar Bass. As I am unable to try before I buy (can return tho), I was wondering about the body size. As I am on the skinny side, I simply don't like large bass bodies, and I find the standard Jazz Bass a little large. How is the Jaguar basses compared to the Jazz? Smaller body, or more or less same size?

    I just compared weights of a modest sample size of Warmoth bodies (same wood) on their website: Jazzmaster averaged same as Jazz. Dinky Jazz was significantly less though!
    I also noticed horn and bridge located a bit farther from nut on the Jazzmaster, vs the Jazz. So the neck will feel a little longer I imagine; the way a Jazz feels longer than a P.
