    I was planning on making/converting my Fender Jazzbass Plus to an 8-string (via Warmoth):

    Probably Changing:

    Neck
    Pup's (Passive, Vol, Blend, Tone)
    Bridge



    Any input?

    Anybody do this before?

    Would someone suggest me getting a MIM and then doing this?

    I would buy a MIM first. Preferably a candy apple red one in excellent condition for $300 from me :)
