    I've got a Fenderstein Jazz assembled from a US standard body (4-bolt fitting) and a MIJ '75 Reissue neck (3-bolt). I bought the bass second hand and I've never taken the neck off to see what the conversion looks like, so I can't give you any more information. Never had any major problems with the setup of the neck, and I use the bass a lot.
