I got a broken squier p-bass for $20. it needs a new neck, what kind of neck will fit on there? will jazz bass and p-bass necks both fit? they're the same scale right?

jazz bass necks are definitely thinner than p-bass necks. I don't know about the butt widths though, I've never tried swapping necks











lol, butt width...

They're the exact same scale. And while P's & J's are different widths at the nut, you should be fine with any J neck fitting in a Precision neckpocket. It's actually somewhat common for people to swap necks between the two for whatever reason, like a guy I knew wanted the tonal options of a Jazz but preferred playing the wider Precision neck so El Swappo!! Fender even has a Precision in production now with a Jazz-shape neck.

Trewth.

Fender Precision and Jazz bass necks are interchangable. Other Fender bass necks, like the Telecaster bass, or Mustang bass, will not fit on a P or J bass. But those are pretty rare, and you're unlikely to come across them.

Look for a Squierz. Do you have the broken neck?

Squier basses are great. The fender bass guitar design concept is NOT easy to fuck up. In fact, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't spend over $300 for a bass unless it was seriously cool-looking.

thanks, now im between this new squier bronco or the 90´s squier precision, the bronco has the looks and the shotscalz, but i think the P bass might be better quality, what you think mates?

i payed 300 for my mustang bass used.

why pay 140 for a bronco when you could get a mustang for 300 ?

if i ever got a bronco bass i would put a SD 51' QP pickup in it which would probably run the total up to about 200.

for 100 more you can get a used mustang bass

you are right.. What about the '90 presicion? Being MIJ makes it better in any possible way?

I'm going to give them a choice.

a) Quit that band
b) Die by my hand.

They should also change their name to: "We all have tradiitonal and unimaginative tattoos on our right forearms, which is indicative of our 80s rehash bullshit pop punk sound"
