    Is string spacing wider if you use a p bass neck than if you use a j bass neck?

    Yes --at the nut. P bass is wider.

    Jazz bass = 1.5" nut
    Most P basses = 1.63" nut (1/8" wider)
    Some 50's-style P basses have a 1.75" nut but they are not super common; and there are a few rare P's with the 1.5" nut.
