    Is the Sadowsky vintage bass body much smaller than a full size jazz bass body?
    Thanks very much... :)

    It is smaller; the Ultravintage has a full size body. How "much" smaller is hard to describe. But I think they feel very comfortable.

    Holding the Standard 5 next to my '75 reissue, I'd say somewhere around 1/2" narrower, with most of that seemingly shaved off the upper (bass side) contour and horn. The bottom (treble side) contours look pretty much identical, but the upper horn is definately slimmer. It feels more comfortable without being hugely different.
