Very Nice....
Have these "hombres," been modified or are they stock?

CAR Fender Standard Jazz has Different bridge (Gotoh 102-B), pickguard (original stock guard was white) and pickups.
Fender Player series P bass Different Bridge, I put some Hipshot HB-7 27:1 tuners I had from another bass in the past and Fender 63 P bass pickup.
The American Pro Jazz is as stock, not much to dislike about this bass. It is sweet sounding and playing

Oops, sorry left one thing out. I put a Fender S-1 switch on both Jazz Basses for switching pickups from parallel to series mode

Thanks, I do too George. Of the 3 it was my 1st Purchase (2014) and came flawless and nicely setup from Sweetwater one of our Sponsors. I got to see exact photos and weights and chose that one. I did change the white pickguard to Red Tort and put a Gotoh B-102 bridge with Titanium Saddles and Aguilar AG 4J-HC 4-string J Bass Pickup Set - Hum-Canceling
Along with my typical Fender S-1 switch fot pickups. Have to note while you can tell a difference between series and parallel it is not as pronounced as with single coil pickups

As far as neck feel I like the basses in this order.
2017 Fender American Pro Jazz bass- Nice flattened narrow C with rolled edges. Very comfortable- Stays in tune quite well. No flat spots. Very nice player with good sound.

2018 Fender P Player series- 1.65" width at nut. Somewhat narrowed C , comfortable. no noticable flatspots with TI Jazz Flats. A nice player

2014 Fender Standard J bass. Nice player, more rounded C but still comfortable. barely noticable flat spots on G 5th-7th. with TI Jazz flats. With stock 7250 rounds no noticabe flat spots.
