Are MIJ jag's necks thicker than MIM/AV's?

Recommended Posts

As my Squire VM Jaguar got stolen, I'm considering MIJ Traditional 60s or MIM Classic Player for upgrade, but I can't test a Japanese model.

According to Japanese Fender website, MIJ stock model are having an ''U Shape'' neck, when most of the other Jaguar stock models like MIM Classic Player or American series are made with ''C Shape'' necks.

MIJ Traditional 60s


MIM Classic Player


American Vintage


So does it mean MIJ Jag are having a thicker or bigger neck?

As a player with small hands, it's considerable to have thinner necks because they are more comfortable to play with. Thanks a lot

      Hey brothers and sisters, 
      I have a new KC jaguar. I managed to change the humbuckers height (both) by accident when removing my scratchguard cover. Has anyone heard of the standard Fender settings for these? For example how much should I be able to measure (in MM if possible, sorry USA!) FROM the bottom of my strings to the pickups.
      Thanks so much!

      So, this is my project guitar. Bought last year's Made in Mexico Fender Special Edition HH Jazzmaster in Opal White. Somewhere's about $550 retail. These guitars ARE NOT anyhwere at the same quality as the MIM Classic Players, Road Worn or 60s Lacquer models. The wood is super light, and pickups were like, chrome painted, toy pickups. An absolutely gorgeous Jazzmaster that I deigned to make sound and play great.
      So far, I have added a Mastery Bridge, and just this week replaced the pickups with a Seymour Duncan 59 in the neck (love that Jimmy Page tone) and a DiMarzio Super Distortion in the Bridge (to induce feedback with the flip of a toggle switch.)
