Fender Jazz fretboard radius question.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Kawai-chang, Aug 6, 2007.

  1. Hey all.

    Which models of the Jazz have the lower (7.5-8.0"-ish) radius?

    I'm currently playing a Peavey with an 8 inch radius, and I really like the contour of the neck, so I'm looking (possibly) for a Jazz with a similar neck.

    With so many models, I don't know by heart exactly which, but in general, older or vintage models have 7.25" radius.

    Fender changed the radius to 9.5" on newer models at one point - some time in the late-'80s or early '90s.

    Check out Fender's Website. They have the radius measurement listed for every current model.

    Just an example, current MIA and MIMs have 9.5"; '60s and '70s reissues have 7.25"
