    I AM THINKING ABOUT BUILDING A BASS WITH MY GRANDSON. WE KNOW WHERE A BODY IS FAIRLY CHEAP 125 BUCKS. THE GUY HAS KNOW IDEA WHAT IT IS, AND WE CAN'T FIND ANY MARKINGS. IT DOES'NT LOOK LAMINATED. THERE IS KNOW SERIAL NUMBER IN THE THE NECK POCKET. IT MEASURE 13in WIDE AT THE WIDEST POINT 1.75 THICK. IT HAS A LITTLE SQUARE CUT OUT UP BY THE NECK PICKUP. I WAS IN THE SAME FIX WITH MY BASS I GAVE UP LOOKNG ON THE INTERNET. ANYWAY I HAVE SOME OLD PICKUPS AND MIM NECK. BUT IN THE FUTURE IT WOULD BE NICE TO KNOW THE DIFFERENT'S IN THESE BODY'S NECKS ARE NOT AS BAD TO FIND OUT.

    It's very nice of you to build a bass with your grandson but CAPITAL LETTERS DENOTE YELLING.

    No need to shout.

    Whatever you're taking, it's not working to your advantage.

    if you can somehow show a pic, it would be the easiest way to help identify

    A picture is worth 1000 words - caps or no caps

    YOU WILL OFTEN SEE A LITTLE STICKER IN THE NECK PUP ROUTE WITH A PART # ON FENDER BODIES THAT HAVE YET TO BE MOLESTED >>> HIGHLY UNLIKELY THERE IS ONE ON THIS BODY THOUGH ...

    WE CANT POSSIBLY TELL ANYTHING WITHOUT PICTURE (S) .. THATS PLURAL, AS MANY AS YOU CAN GET ...

    PICS AND A TAPE MEASURE SHOULD HELP US TO HELP YOU .. TAKE THE NECK WITH YOU WHEN YOU GO TO LOOK AT THE BODY AND SEE HOW IT FITS!!

    OK??

    ... I know what its like to not see well ... hard hearing too ... but caps has never helped, everything seems to blend together ... it helps me to use ... dots ... to ... spead ... the ... words ... out ... ;)
