I've been playing and collecting guitars, amps, and to some extent basses for many years now. I'm mainly a guitar player, but pick up the bass periodically. I have vintage '65 Fender Jazz Bass that I love. However, I've always wanted one of those late 50's P-basses with the anodized pickguard. Could somebody with vintage knowledge tell me all of the differences that happened to the P-bass during the '57-'59 period. I know they went from a 2-tone burst to a 3-tone burst in the late spring of '58. I have heard the neck is different on all 3 years, and have heard that the '58 has the best neck?? My hands are "large", but I don't have long fingers so I certainly don't want a baseball bat for a neck. Just needing all of the info before I make a purchase. Thanks in advance.
