Owning both basses, I can tell you that the Fender Jazz does have a thinner neck than the Precision. I don't know the exact difference (measurement wise) but it's definitely a noticeable difference.

What is the difference between a Fender jazz Bass And Fender Precision Bass?

The Fender Jazz has a thinner neck made for quicker playing ability. The Fender precision has a fatter neck for stability and precision. The jazz bass has 2 j-pickups, the p-bass has 1 p-pickup. The Fender jazz bass has a brighter tone then the precision bass. The Precision bass body is straight. And The Fender Jazz Bass body is squiggly. If I've gotten it correctly the precision bass was called the precision bass because it had frets and was therefore precise compared to an upright bass. I've owned both a precision and jazz bass at different times. I would say, in the end, you can get the same tone out of either one.
