Would a Jneck fit a P 52 Reissue?

  1. I'm planning on getting a Fender 51 Pbass RI, the only thing I do not like is the head stock. I dont like the small compressed design.
    So, would a Jneck fit on a 51 RI?
  2. I'm pretty sure that they all use the standard fender neck pocket, so yeah, it would fit

    The heel of the Jazz neck is round, not squared like the tele style '50s necks.

    Dont know if this helps or not but I currently have a 68 P neck on a 69 J bass body and it rocks!!!!! I would think it would work the other way as well, but I am no expert ....

    i had a 51 reissue precision and i think the headstock is the only cool thing in that bass.. the bridge sucks and it has just that sound... one suggestion: if you play harmonics don't buy it!
    it completely lacks in harmonics, maybe because of the pickup position
