    I just picked up a new American Deluxe P-Bass last week and was wondering if an American Deluxe Jazz neck will fit on this thing. I have small hands and fingers and prefer the slimmer jazz neck, but I couldn't get the sounds I got from the P out of my head for three days after I saw it, hence the purchase. So anyone know if it will fit?

    Thanks ahead.

    Hmmm. Maybe you shoulda got the Mexican P Deluxe Special. It comes with the Jazz neck. Dunno the answer.

    I did play the Mexican, but I wasn't able to get the same tones out of it. The price was definately better though. :)

    Hi,
    Yes, the jazz neck will fit no problem.
    The neck pocket dimensions are identical.
    Mind you,I would persevere with the P neck..
    You'll soon get used to it.
    :D

    Ditto on what Paul said. I wouldn't jump the gun to quickly on switching the neck. I have a P-Deluxe and was concerned about the neck at first. I got used to it in no time. It became even more comfortable than my thinner neck basses.
     
  6. My RB5 has a C size neck and I have small hands. No problem at all with a bit of practice. I now prefer it.

    I'm not looking to change the neck for a while. I still gotta pay for this thing! :)

    I'm used to it already, I started out on a Mexican P-Bass, but I still prefer the Jazz neck in the end.

    Thanks for letting me know it will work.
