Hello all. I've recently begun playing bass and I currently have an american made Fender P-Bass. I like this instrument, however the neck seems a bit large for my hands. I played around with a friends Jazz bass and its neck seemed a lot smaller - is this accurate? He didn't know, and I'm not sure either. Is there a variance in the neck dimensions between the two? Which one would be better for a player without gangly hands? Also, what is the sound difference between the two?

I've got one other question too: What is a good inexpensive amp for gigging? I like a good solid, punchy sound - not anything rumbly or fat. I'll probably be playing with a pick for the most part (at least for now).

All advice is appreciated! Thanks!
