    Can I put J Neck on a P body? and a P body on a j neck? would the intonation be screwed up or something?

    what are the differences between the two?

    The Width at the nut

    the j-bass is 1 1/2" and the p-bass is a bit bigger
    and both will fit on either body :hyper:
     
  3. The P neck was actually offered in several different widths (at the nut), the A (?) option was equal to a Jazz in width--that's what I've got on my 78 Pbass.

    I don't know if Fender still offers different nut widths.
