Mid 70's precision "A" neck, worth paying more for?

    I have a 75 Fender P with an A width (1.5") neck. For those that have played one, was curious what you think of it? My opinion is that it is more comfortable to play than wider P necks. But it also retains the feel of a P neck. It's not a Jazz neck despite having the same width.

    The real reason I ask, beside curiosity of what others think, is that I am considering selling this particular bass and was wondering if I can get a premium for the A neck. Will people pay more for one?

    It may not add much to value but it will make it more marketable since alot of players seem to like that configuration. These don't really pop up all too often which means you have some leverage when it comes to hagglers.

    Keep it, you'll regret selling an old war horse like that
     
  5. Some would pay more for an A neck P.
    Others would accept it as well as a B or C neck.
    A few would want a discount.

    It all depends on personal preference.

    A facotory A neck P is rather rare.

    I would pay more for an A neck P but not unless it was >9 lbs.
