I was give some spare parts from my brother a few years ago, and decided to finally give building a Bass a shot.
The body I have is an unfinished (for now) P/J style body, and the neck is an AXS Jazz neck (I've never heard of AXS; Don't know much about it other than it's MIJ)
The issue that arrises is that the neck just doesn't quite fit into the body.
Here's a few pictures:
So my question is, what is the best way to remedy this? Cut into the body? Shave the neck? What tools would I need, and what techniques should I try? I am completely new to this sort of thing, and was hoping it would fit without having to attempt any carpentry. That doesn't appear to be the case though.
Also, any info anyone has on AXY Guitars would be interesting.
