so I just bought this p-bass off ebay. $350 got an american deluxe (98 usa)rosewood neck, and what I thought was a deluxe body (usa alder) with duncan quarterpounders. Great deal I figure. All true except, this is a frankenstien with the neck seemingly mated to a usa standard p body. Here's the problem. The American Deluxe p-bass has that jass pickup looking thing (I'm a purest, don't approve)and the bridge on those suckers is set much further up on the body than a traditional p-bass. Long and short. I can't intonate the sucker with the bridge in the standard positioning. Bought a BadAss II to try and compensate for the distance, but it still isn't enough. The only thing to do is to move it up further, but then I have drill holes from original bridge showing. ah well....live and learn. just looking for any other suggestions before I punch holes in this thing. It will still be a good bass for the money, save for the ugly holes.
