    I have a Fender Jazz bass and a spare Jazz neck. I'd like to get a Precision but much prefer the narrower Jazz neck.

    Is there any reason not to just get a Precision body and attach my Jazz neck to it?

    Nope...

    The Fender Precision Special and all Aerodyne P-bass are both P bodies with J necks. Its a good recipe IMO.

    They should bolt right up. I have a USA lakland Bob Glaub on order with a Jazz-taper neck. Very popular combination.

    I do 'em the other way.. P necks on Jazz bodies, but once again, no reason not to.
     
  7. what your talking about is called a precision special, i love them, they often come with a jazz pickup in bridge position, aswell as the precision pickup, i absolutely love them, small precision body with the thin jazz neck, they are the basses for me!
     
  8. This was my first real bass ever, bought it used. A 76 jazz neck, not sure the origin of the body but the neck plate dated to 61. I now play Squier ProTone P basses, they have Jazz neck specs on P bodies with a Jazz bridge pickup , much like P bass special.

    Great combo

    Thanks for all the replies. The Jazz neck is going to go on a Precision body.

    Hey Kenny, ever met Duck? Super nice guy...I used to talk to him quite a bit years ago (mid to late 80s) when he played in a local bar band at Mallards (I believe thats what it was called) in the Peabody. Great guy. (PS I live in Memphis also).
