Well, I would like to introduce myself, as this is my first post. "I am an idiot!" (But that is mostly because I am a guitarist and not a bassist.) I just picked up at 22 fret(less) J-Bass neck off E-bay. I simultaneously ordered a J-bass body from Warmoth, which I had a custom hole drilled in, so it is non-returnable. 34" scale body...but with this neck--35.5" scale. You get the picture... Should I: 1. lengthen the neck pocket to shorten the scale, leaving the bridge and pickup routes in the proper position. 2. attach the neck as is and move the bridge to create the proper scale length, and install the pickups in the current routes. 3. Attach the neck as is and move the bridge, while also making new routes in my brand new one piece body and pickguard. 4. install the neck from my MIM P-Bass and destroy that body instead until I can afford another neck for the J. 5. other options? The neck is from a 97 American Deluxe J Bass. Obviously the body is already routed and drilled for the bridge.
