I'd be worried about getting the wrong size, if I bought online. Just P basses or were there other options?

I chose the same size as my Converse boots fwiw. Looks like p bass is the only bass guitar option but there are other colour options:

I'm more worried about the lack of a body. There are laces where the upper horn should be. How's the balance?
