    I've decided to put together a P Bass. I trolled eBay for awhile. I finally found a body I liked, plus it was fully loaded. The body is an MJT. It is loaded with a Fender Vintage P pickup, pots and wiring. All the hardware is Fender as well.

    I haven't quite decided on a neck, but I am thinking of a bound and blocked, maple/maple.

    What do all think?

    I love the look of that neck on almost any bass. It's definitely what I would put on that body.

    I ordered a neck for this project today. Ended up going with a Fender Road Worn 50's Precision Bass neck. I've heard great things about them, and it should compliment the broken in look of the body. Should have it early to mid next week. You can bet I'll post a ton of pictures!

    Excellent choice of necks. I have a couple/few 50's and 50's Road Worn necks on my parts basses.

    Although I don't get the whole "road worn", "relic", etc.. thing, I have to say that every RW Fender I've played has played and sounded very good - I think you'll probably be happy with that neck, OP...

    +1 here.

    Though considering your body is relic'd it should complete the look.
