    This is related to my last thread and its not really a what bass theread.

    I am 14 short and my hands are kinda medium sizeish or so and thatts why I thought to get a jazz bass cuz the neck is so small and it would be easyr to play and let me tell you it is, at least for me. But I've been going after a new bass and looking at Spectors, I have yet to pick one up so..

    Theses q's will alll be answered once I pick one uo prolly but in the mean time.

    Is the neck skinny like a jazz bass? bigger than a pbass?

    And there are 24 frets will the thing be to long for me?

    It seems like these basses are big, is that who there for bigger people???

    How are the electronics, construction of these basses in the professional series compared to say a Fender MIM or a active Jazz bass by fender.

    people say fenders are built so well, what about spector

    The neck on a Spector is nowhere near as thin as a Fender Jazz Bass. It's not quite as wide as a P-bass, but it's close.

    It doesn't make any difference how many frets are on the bass. What matters is the scale length. If you have small hands, you may want to stay away from a 35" scale.

    Spector basses have bodies that are a little smaller than Fenders.

    Spector quality is great. The professional series is made in Korea (I think), but Stuart qc's them with his own two hands when they're completed and shipped back to the US.
