I did a search, and I didn't find what I am looking for, so I'll post here. I have been 'gasing' for a new Fender 75 RI Jazz for a while now, and the ones that I have found, for the most part have a 3 bolt neck. I have always played 4, and here lies the problem. I am not an overly aggressive player, but I am worried that a 3 bolt neck would break like a toothpick. They just don't seem as solid as a 4 (kinda like the whole MIM / MIA debate). Has anybody had ANY problems with a 3 bolt neck? Could you take the 3 bolts out, and replace with a 4 bolt neck plate, or would the previous holes weaken and leave the neck even worse off? Or is this one of those things that shouldn't/doesn't even come into play, because unless I pull a Paul Simonon, the 3 bolt will be perfect etc etc? Any input would be great.
