First of all, I tried looking for a thread similar to this one but I couldn't find one. I hope I'm posting it on the right place.
So I'm trying to build a Fender VI (actually paying someone to do it), but I have some doubts:
1) Does it use Guitar Pick Ups? I've seen videos on youtube saying that they have Jaguar and, in some cases, strats pick ups. Is this correct?
2) Is the bridge a guitar bridge? Same thing here... looks like a regular jaguar bridge. Will a regular jaguar bridge be able to handle the strings?
3) String size! I know D'addario sells Fender VI strings but I don't think I can get them in my country (that's the reason I'm building the damn thing, otherwise I'd just buy a Schecter Hellcat VI, wich they don't sell here either), can I use the strings from a 7 string guitar on this bass? Will it sound like crap?
That's basically it. The guy I talked to to build it was super confident about what he needed, but he kept saying "I know it says bass, but it's a guitar"... It really DOESN'T sound like a guitar to me.
