    Hey everyone

    I have a question. I know it's probably kinda dumb but to be honest I really don't know the answer! I can't find it anywhere!
    Anyway, I was wondering, what sort of neck does a P/J bass use? I ask this as I am thinking of ordering a fretless neck off warmoth when I get a newer bass.

    Any help would be appreciated. :)

    depends on the bass.. the squier p bass specials have j necks. the mark hoppus sig has a p bass neck. but with most squiers and fenders they necks with fit both p and j basses so go with the one you like better. The j neck is slightly slimmer at the nut. 1.5 inches to be exact. the p bass is 1.75 at the nut.

    My '87 Jazz Bass Special (P body, P/J pickups) has a Jazz neck. I prefer it over a precision neck, personally. One thing about mine is that it also has a nice 7-1/4" radius, instead of the more modern 9" radius. I really like the feel.

    Thanks for the replies guys, I measured my neck at the nut and it's about 1.6 inches so I think I have a P neck. Also I have an Aria STB series, does that mean fender necks would fit on it?
    Thanks for the help :)
  5. New American Standard Ps have a 1.625 nut. In the 70s Ps were available with A (1.5 like jazz), B (1.625) or C (1.75) necks. Vintage radius is 7.25, modern 9.
