    Are there enough of these for a club? There's a bunch of p's with j necks, not so much the other way around. Here's my MIJ jazz with scn noiseless pups and a cabronita p neck. Anyone else?

    I got this in 1982 - '72 J body, '74 P neck, Dimarzio pup, BadAss II bridge, and Hipshot on the E. Sounds killer.

    My old girl. Pawnshop-bought around '85, possibly not a Fender body, but sounds like God. Sadly, she doesn't get played much these days...

    I've been into this for a while. To me the P-Neck adds more ??? bottom, thickness, thud to the Jazz tone.
    It is subtle, but there.
    I had a 1963 Jazz body with a 1962 P-neck, for years. It was the bomb. And I did it to a AV reissue Jazz / P-Neck.

    Anyone else?

    Some minor changes to mine: precision knobs, stick on thumbrests, TI flats, and I put the pickguard back on.

  13. One of Jaco's basses was a J body with a P neck. Maple neck, if memory serves me well.

    Yup. The one in the modern electric bass video.


    I've always wondered about that bass. Is it the bass of doom body with a P neck? And what's with the nut? It looks like he's filing it down in the beginning of the video, and the nut looks wider than the neck.

    I remember hearing it was BOD with p bass neck but its never been confirmed. No mention of this in BP Magazine issue with Jaco's collection. I almost think the Sunburst has too much yellow for BOD but I could be wrong.

    Here's my 2012 FSR hand stained ash Jazz with a 2012 Roadworn P neck.
    I went through a lot of pick ups and pre amps until I settled on DiMarzio Area J's passive.
    8 3/4 pounds with no batterys.

    They are La Bella 760FS 105-85 E & A and 760M (Jamerson) 73-52 D&G.
    I love them. I have my Ray strung the same way.
