    Anyone with this model:


    ...can you tell me--is the body roughly the same size as a P or J? I realize the shape is different, but I seem to recall someone here saying that even the full scale versions of this model had a pretty smallish (more guitar-like) body.

    Anyone know?

    It says "full scale" in the description...so I'd assume it's full scale :)

    Well, that refers to the scale length of the neck.

    I'm more interested if the body size is comparable to a regular old P or J bass.

    Just seems like I remember someone here mentioning they thought the body was sort of small and guitar-ish.

    There is a really nice review thread of that model. If I recall, he described the body has feeling like a slightly small Jazz.

    It states the width of the body at the widest point is 14-1/2"
    Short scale is 12". Full scale Jazz is 13"
    Short scale P is 12". Full scale P is 13"
