I have the older Yamaha Nathan East BBeast and really like the new features on the new Nathan East NE2 and was thinking of upgrading. I also like the new Fender Jazz QMT but was worried that the neck would be wider and I have short fingers. My only experience with 5string fenders is that I had tried playing a Fender Jazz V mexican and the neck felt like a baseball bat. Has anyone tried either one? Your advice is appreciated. Thanks.
