    OK guys not sure if this is the right spot for this forum but here goes..

    So I have a roadworn jazz I love but I am wanting to have a jazz with 2 p pickups if not a 3rd pickup right at the neck.

    I have considered a new parts build which I have done.

    Or a new build where I make the body and neck which I haven't done. The whole 9 yards basically.

    So should I modify the crap out of my beloved roadworn? Or simply start a new build? What do you guys think?

    If price is not a factor, build new.

    If I can get my Ric 4003 to sell out right those funds will go right into the build.

    I was examining the RW, it has plenty of relic stuff probably more than from the factory lol like small dings and nics so probably wouldnt be a fun one to refinish..
