I'd have to think that this has been attempted before, but didn't see anything with a quick search.
I love my 60th anniversary US P-bass, but find myself wanting a 5th string and some more options for tone, particularly when using effects.
So the thinking was to start with a Jazz body like this and route it for a Precision pickup. http://www.ebay.com/itm/LOADED-2012-...item53f7ed97e2
Then add a nice neck like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2013-Fender-...item53f9af8979
I'd probably upgrade the bridge and do a string-through as well.
So there is the concept. What's wrong with it?
Will it cost me more than a new US Fender P5 in the end and not be half as good?
Will the neck fit?
Any thought or comments?
