    Ok, might be a stupid question... on my upright, double bass, can I put a 4/4 neck on a 3/4 body? The neck it a rough cut and still needs trimming. If I trim it right will it work? Thanks guys.

    As long as the body has enough space behind the bridge location now that you can move it back so it can have proper intonation .

    Why though ? 4/4 is super uncommon and a bear to play unless you're a giant.
