    Can I use this fender stu hamn neck with a jazz bass body? i realize the hole pattern is a bit different, but couldnt i just drill into it and create a new hole?

    What kind of quality are these necks?

  2. If the neck is 32" scale and the body 34" scale, no. The intonation will always be off.
     
  3. Actually, that brings up a good question...is it an Urge II neck...Urge II's are 34" scale

    And a 32" scale neck might just work on a regular body. The bridge may have to be moved, but forward, not backward.

    The main issues here are cavity dimensions.

    Well, the Urge II has a 24 fret neck, so you will be hard pressed to find a Jazz Body that will take it without modification.

    yeah, here again, it's an issue of bridge placement along with scale length. you might have to move the bridge too far forward to make it work - the bridge pup is pretty close to the bridge, there's not much leeway there.
