    Hi folks,

    I'm laying out the dimensions of a new Jazz Bass build, and I have decided to build a 70's Jazz bass.

    I'm looking for the distance between between the center of the neck pickup to the center of the bridge pickup.

    You help is greatly appreciated.

    On vintage Jazzes, '60s spacing is 3.6" - center of p/u to center of p/u. '70s is 4.0".
