    Say I wanted a P bass but I want one with a Jazz neck (1.5" wide) but also with a thicker C profile. I prefer to play something that feels like a baseball bat.

    Which Fenders fit this requirement? Any?

    The neck from the Classic '70s Jazz might fit your bill. It has the 1.5" Jazz nut-width, a curvy 7.25" fretboard radius and what they call a "'70s C" neck shape. Most people here agree it's one of the chunkier, more baseball-bat like necks in Fender's stable without going vintage.

    If the neck is all you need, Fender is selling it among their replacement necks. Just a little FYI, their nuts are pre-slotted, but not fully-cut.
