    I own five Jazz basses: USA Deluxe Jazz V, USA Deluxe Jazz 4string, MIJ Geddy Lee Jazz, MIJ Aerodyne Jazz and a MIM Standard Jazz V. I want to do some updates to the MIM Standard Jazz V: N3 pups, high mass bridge and new neck. I have the opportunity to buy an American Deluxe Jazz V neck for this purpose.

    Simple question: can this neck be easily fit to the MIM Jazz V Standard body. I know there are five holes required for attachment, so drilling new ones and a new neck plate are in order. Other than that, though, is there anything more such as further routing of the neck cavity on the body, etc?

    Thanks for any help y'all might provide.

    What's wrong with the original neck?

    I want the four up-one down clover leaf configuration and the block inlays. The original has dots and five inline.
