: anyone here play a Fender Precision?
: are the necks really huge like baseball bats? I wanna try one out but ain't no Fender dealers this side of the river. my hands ain't so big; can the neck size just be gotten used to?
: along the same lines...are the Fender American series P-Basses good quality?
I recently tried a couple of P-basses out at a music store. The first one had a HUGE thick baseball bat neck, that I didn't like. The second one, a nice bass with a Swamp Ash body, had a neck almost as small as a Jazz Bass. They were both American P-Basses, but the Swamp Ash one was made about a year earlier. I don't know if they changed the necks from one year to the next, or if the Swamp Ash one normally has a different neck from the standard alder body ones. The only advice I can give is try it before you buy, or buy from someplace like Musicians Friend that will take a return if you don't like it.
