    I have a squire 70s p bass (not a vintage one a 2014 model) love it but the damn neck is way to skinny. I looked online and it has a Nut width: 1.65”. And it’s Radius: 9.5". I’m looking at a all parts neck with a 10” radius and a nut with of 1 9/16 which I believe is only an inch and a half. I’m guessing that means it won’t be too much of a difference? Unless I’ve read it completely wrong, I also of course can’t go try out the neck so if anyone has any info on how much of a difference it would be, or has that neck, or really Info please let me know :)
    Here’s my bass measurements included

  2. 1 9/16" = 1.5625", so it's narrower than 1.65".
    I doubt the radius difference will be very meaningful either.
    On the other hand, if the thickness of the neck front-to-back is appreciably higher--like a deeper C--you might find it more comfortable.

    Find one of those MIM Fender 50's necks. 1.75" neck and on the chunky side. The radius will be more like 7.25 but in reality I'm not sure how much difference that would make.
