SX Jazz bass neck help

    I have always wanted a Jazz bass, but everytime I have played the Fender Jazz basses I don't really like how small the neck is at the nut. I think it is 1.5 inches. I noticed the SX jazz basses have a little wider neck at the nut. So is there a big difference between the SX neck and Fender necks? I am use to playing basses with nice big necks, like Rics, EB stingrays, P bass, and ATKs. I have been looking at getting this one when it is back in stock. But I am just not sure if I'll like the smaller neck..


    Thanks guys..

    The SX Jazz Bass I have has a neck that is quite a bt beefier than my Fender Jazzes. I'm not sure on the width, but front to back they are definitely chunkier. Very comfortable necks IMO.

    my SX jazz with the block neck is 1.5 at the nut. may be thicker front to back than a Fender Jazz, but i have never compared one.

    I have 2 SX jazz necks. They both feel a bit bigger than Fender Jazz necks to me but still closer to a J bass than a P bass.
