5 string jazz bass to toy with

  1. I am looking for a cheap 5 string Jazz bass style bas to tinker with. I want something as cheap as possible but yet have a decent B string. I looked at Essex but they do not have a Jazz type of bass. My biggest issue is a neck profile and string spaceing of a fender 5 string Jazz. Any suggestions are appreciated.
  2. I was also wondering about possible buying a squire P-bass 5 and using that body. Switching out pickups and refinishing it. Are the pickups the same size as Jazz bass pickups?
